Editorial Reviews

Spin (p.80) - "[T]aut, unpretentious tunes that sound flawless..."

Spin (p.30) - Ranked #26 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2009" -- "[W]hen the moments of grace come, they're devastating."

Alternative Press (p.110) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "With an oft-muted musical backdrop, each thunderous timpani roll or plucked piano string conveys the sheer weight of this subject."

Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "As Darnielle's lyrics take centre stage, so piano and acoustic guitar offer muted backing....Fascinating..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "LIFE's tone is quiet and contemplative....Its simplicity actually echoes early Mountain Goats albums more clearly than anything he's released in the past few years."
