    Though Negativity bounces around a little, its tormented core and multifaceted musical approach make it one of Deer Tick's most consistent and enjoyable albums.

    Tight songs flash their roots.

    Less sprawling than its immediate predecessor, at its best it highlights the band’s creativity and tautness, echoing some of the vigour of Born on Flag Day.

    Songs are focused, multi-layered and crafted, sometimes even bringing Wilco’s more experimental moments to mind.
