  1. The Unicorns manage to polish an array of pawn shop instruments into miniature masterpieces.
  2. Genuinely great pop music that's experimental, catchy, and, most of all, weird.
  3. The Unicorns’ Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? defines indie-pop, laden with hooks boasting a charmingly lo-fi sound devoid of pretensions and true to whatever whimsy their muse has stricken them with.
  4. A consistent, immediately catchy album that holds up after repeated listens.
  5. To be sure, there is an ironic smirk clinging to much of Who Will Cut Our Hair..., but there is also the subtle beatings of unpretentious sympathy and maverick potential.

    The schizophrenic tone changes recall the experimentation of Deerhoof, yet the overall sound is as natural as The Flaming Lips. [Jan 2005, p.132]
  7. I’m just astounded by how bad this album actually is.

    Apparently stagnation in current musical production and composition, is completely reflected in the stale, unsophisticated musical sense of the entertainment review industry. A truly innovative and impressive album, with all the joy and unpretentious excitement of youth. Also Les Os, I Was Born, Tuff Ghost, The Clap, Jellybones and Let's Get Known fucking rock. Expand

    The last minute and a half of "Les Os" might just be the best little bit of music ever composed. Absolutely brilliant album.

    Somewhere in the asshole of my eye theres' a muscle that relaxes when I cry....Fucking brilliant imagery and so much fun. Reminds me of the days when I would lay on my bedroom floor staring at the ceiling day dreaming of impossible feats and drooling. Expand

    I'll start by saying that this is the most original, unique, genuinely real album that I've heard in ages. I won't complicate things by going on and on about the record's greatness, but I will say one thing: buy it. Now. Expand
