  1. Q Magazine
    Its surreal mix of chamber-pop, electro-funk and avant-garde noise is well executed, but it's so scatter shot, that, ultimately, it frustrates. [Nov 2007, p.137]
  2. As usual, this record will leave many scratching their heads, but for fans who like their music a little more complicated, this is easily one of the more interesting records out there.
  3. Factor in the music’s kitchen-sink vibe--anchored by a Chamberlin keyboard that triggers tape loops of various instruments--and the album is a lot to take in. But the task can be rewarding.
  4. Since the band plays it so safe on this record, it makes the stories they are telling sound emotionless.
  5. 40
    By now the patience of even their most ardent fans must be wearing thin
