  1. 100
    A monumental record from a towering talent. [#59, p.103]
  2. So when I say that Yours, Mine & Ours sounds too good to be true, I'm resolved after much deliberation that this is an entirely positive thing: it is impeccably conceived, executed, and produced.
  3. Yours, Mine & Ours is a truly grand record, another in the string of classic releases by Joe Pernice.... The kind of record fans of intelligent pop music played with real emotion should purchase. Immediately.
  4. The Pernice Brothers' strongest effort yet.
  5. 80
    The balance between Joe's resigned words and uplifting melodies remains sublime. [Aug 2003, p.100]
  6. Beyond serving as an excellent follow up to The World Won't End, Yours, Mine & Ours reveals a whole new side to the Pernice Brothers.
  7. Doesn't quite have the ragged charm or the wry humor of 2001's outstanding The World Won't End; the occasional dose of guitar bombast ("One Foot in the Grave") doesn't serve Pernice well.

    I rarley give a 10, but there really is not a single bad track on here. I feel bad for Joe Pernice though, because every cd that he puts out is incredible and he can only decide a few singles (although every song is worthy) for each one. Can't wait for his next one. Expand

    Once again, Joe & Company prove why there one of the most reliable bands around. And there 3rd LP "Yours, Mine & Ours" proves my point. No wonder this has a 88 on metacritc, it's a beauiful record & joy to listen to. Joe Pernice has to be one of the best song writers in the music industry, right now. I don't know if "Yours, Mine & Ours" is not my favorite of their's, it's probably "Discover A Lovelier You" but YMO isn't too far behind, I don't there both probably neck & neck for first. Anway, this album has tons & tons gems, for example-- One Foot in the Grave, Baby in Two, Blinded by the Stars, The Weakest Shade of Blue & Sometimes I Remember. Overall, great album and one of the best of 05. Expand

    Less sweeping, more intimate then "The World Won't End." I'm starting to believe that the Pernice Brothers might write the prettiest pop songs right now. Expand
