  1. Honestly, none of it makes a lick of sense, but unlike, say, the Beta Band -- whose entire shtick was that the parts of their music never fit into a coherent whole -- there's a shapeliness to Zootime that suggests the record was constructed from some inscrutable blueprint that's just naggingly out of reach.
  2. Spin

    There's enough promise here to rattle more cages soon. [Jun 2007, p.94]
  3. Under The Radar
    70
    There is promise in these [new] tracks; however, they fail to truly add anything to the band's already impressive debut. [#17, p.86]
  4. It is an energetic, powerful, and enjoyable album where occasionally pretty invention is marred by the suspicion that a hit-making producer is on deck.
