Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Spin (p.114) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n unironic homage to France, intending to evoke a different city on each song....It adds up to great fun..."

Uncut (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Condon coos these heart-broken serenades and intoxicated ballads in a liquid vibrato moan somewhere between Thom Yorke and Antony Hegarty."

Alternative Press (p.130) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Condon's] vocals are more pronounced when he's joined by a chorus of fellow believers, making this band of sonic gypsies seem communal rather than individual..."

Magnet (p.91) - "The album serves as a musical travelogue through various French cities and deals with the country's rich tradition of music, fashion and culture.....Stunning."

CMJ (p.10) - "Condon is freed up to write some of his best melodies yet -- like the wine-stained waltz 'Forks And Knives' -- and his newly mature, melodramatic croon is in fine form throughout."

Q (Magazine) (p.80) - Ranked #26 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007."
