  • Summary: The seventh LP for the San Francisco-based band sees the fractured band reunited, as singer and co-founder David Freel is rejoined by drummer Sean Kirkpatrick.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. A swirling, beautiful, and warmly complex road trip of an album.
  2. The best Swell album since 1997’s Too Many Days Without Thinking.
  3. An album packed with as many irresistible hooks as Whenever You’re Ready deserves to be heard.
  4. After forty minutes of two-chord strumming, the band's unique approach becomes exhausting.
  5. There are some crisp pop tunes--Next To Nothing; So Easy, So Cool--but the country-tinged folk of Convince Us and Say Goodbye reek of "will this do?" [Nov 2003, p.124]
