  1. Like no other pop album you've ever heard.
  2. This record explodes with song after song of endlessly replayable, perfect pop.

    Optimistic, ambient indie rock that floats between the bubble bath and the deep blue sea. [Sep 2003, p.115]
  4. Even though it starts to coast a bit near the end, You Forgot It in People is still a highly enjoyable, effervescent, endlessly inventive album that crosses genres with astonishing ease.
  5. The most shocking aspect about You Forgot It in People is just how easily everything seems to be accomplished. Every note and transition is smooth and effortless, and there is such a wealth of brilliantly executed music.

    While all this sounds real pretty and is a pitch-perfect soundtrack for your hip cosmopolitan engagements, You Forgot doesn't have enough stick-to-your-gut songs to sustain a long-term, repeated-listening relationship. [#60, p.93]

    Shockingly good, very rewarding upon repeat listenings. The best I've heard in about two years (and I'm a record fiend). Buy it now!

    Incredible album. It works so well as a whole. THere are few albums where the instumentals are as good as the actual songs.

    A mix of boring instrumentals and a few good indie and pop songs. They don't do their post-rock upbringings any justice on this album.
