    The band sound bored. [Dec 2012, p.103]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score

    • 55 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score

    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Ultimately, this 11-track LP is nine songs too long as the rest swill around the bottom of the indie-rock barrel like thin gruel. [Apr 2014, p.121]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    A hideous mess of electro noodling and maddeningly obtuse, tuneless vocals. [May 2006, p.126]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    This is hollow, pretentious and deeply dull music. [Apr 2007, p.116]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 0 Critic Score
    As worthless as it's possible for music to be. [Feb 2005, p.100]
