    Rock's Best-Kept-Secret Strikes Again! Easily one of the best albums of last year (and now this year), "Forget Yourself" is deserving of the critical acclaim. And why shouldn't The Church be proud? This is easily one of their most solid albums, ranking up at the top with "Starfish" and "Heyday." Tracks like Telepath, Maya, and June are the strongest on the album with the Led Rock's Best-Kept-Secret Strikes Again! Easily one of the best albums of last year (and now this year), "Forget Yourself" is deserving of the critical acclaim. And why shouldn't The Church be proud? This is easily one of their most solid albums, ranking up at the top with "Starfish" and "Heyday." Tracks like Telepath, Maya, and June are the strongest on the album with the Led Zepplinish, Nothing Seeker and beautiful Appalatia following close behind. Clearly, The Church are evolving, experimenting, and producing some of their best music of their long career, at a time when lesser bands would be packing it in. This album should work wonderfully live where The Church truly shine! Expand

    The record's near-constant gloom and woolly arrangements are difficult to digest. [Feb 2004, p.99]
  2. Forget Yourself is overlong and largely unoriginal, but it possesses a craft and sophistication largely missing from many of its modern-day guitar-pop peers.

    The Church's languid melancholy sedates rather than seduces. [Feb 2004, p.88]
