"If you can follow the band into this smoother, more calmly seductive realm, you should be satisfied. The production's great. The songs memorable." stereo gum.com
"An album that is confident and playful, without ever being in your face. It's a dextrous and beautiful record that does not have a bad song on it." state.ie
"Only closer "Caffeinated Consciousness" really distinguishes itself, and then only from the album rather than from the limping genre." cokemachine glow.com
"Sounds familiar, but it's a good familiar. Whether this is the band they are now or they're just gearing up to take a turn for the edgier again, most bands would kill to have a 'comfort zone' this high." onethirtybpm.com
