  1. Like any covers album that translates between genres, there’s an occasional sense of frustration or compromise...but that's "occasional" within tracks--there are no duds here.
  2. While their version of My Bloody Valentine’s ‘Only Shallow’ sounds exactly the same only much more so, the unexpected choices work best.
  3. On When I See the Sun, they seem to want to prove they also recognize great songwriting, and it turns out they not only have impeccable taste, they also have an instinctive understanding of the type of songs that tend to increase in mystery and intimacy when swaddled in an impenetrable fog of guitars.

    This covers set is a fine entry-point. [Jul 2009, p.97]
  5. This is an immensely satisfying little collection, as good a gateway drug into Nadja’s vast sonic world as you’ll find.
  6. This is an interesting diversion giving insight into the band's coordinates.
  7. Almost every song is terribly alike--each featuring the same hallmarks Nadja’s become known for, besides their most important aspect, being their relentless creativity--and this bland similarity becomes taxing.
