FilterProves that Prekop really is one of the few musicians who can allude to the '70s, soul, jazz and fun--yet still sound sincere. [#14, p.99]
Sometimes this gets boring, when tracks lull and hunch into the next and Sam’s voice doesn’t do much to challenge the monotony. Sometimes it’s confusing to hear such graciously restrained music eventually show itself as meticulous, experimental, and deep, deep, deep. Well, not confusing. Refreshing.

ToddAApr 6, 2005Marginally weaker than his first solo outing, but still one of the best records I've yet to hear this year.
PaulJul 11, 2005In my view, the most assured, confident and consistent group of Prekop's songs to date, his Sea and Cake output included.
MarkO.Mar 23, 2005This is a really nice album. When everything seems like turmoil in your life, throw this on and relax. Cool, refreshing, never boring or samesy.
[Anonymous]Apr 1, 2005Pleasant but slight. It's relaxing and enjoyable, though, so if you need something to mellow out to, give it a spin. Nice to hear Prekop Pleasant but slight.
