  1. Equally suitable for a Wild West saloon or meth lab. [7 Apr 2006, p.63]
  2. If the album has flaws, it has great and unique strengths. Difficult, maybe, but captivating.
  3. In What The Toll Tells we’ve been served up an In The Aeroplane Over The Sea for ’06 – full of misty-eyed dreams and incredible characters.

    Sure, the stories are worn and the whiskey is cut-rate, but the feeling is real. [#71, p.113]
  5. 70
    The raw poetic facade occasionally cracks, but there is something special here. [Mar 2006, p.88]
  6. 60
    A sincere winner. [Mar 2006, p.123]
  7. Everything sung here is manufactured to conjure up the same bullshit sense of nostalgia that the band's James Joyce-inspired name is supposed to. [#12, p.93]
