Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/26/02, p.107) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2002"

Rolling Stone (7/25/02, p.74) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Achieves that rare thing for any band - real consistency. It's the band's gift to its broken home, a set of good songs, a lesson in reconciliation."

Spin (8/02, p.109) - 6 out of 10- "...They reaffirmed their art-punk cred...this time around, the band square their artier tendencies with their sweet tooth for classic psych-rock, slipping New Yawk punk solos and acid-folk riffs half remembered from old Grateful Dead records..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/20-27/02, p.128) - Ranked #7 on EW's list of 2002's "Albums of the Year"

Entertainment Weekly (6/28/02, p.142) - "...A near perfect, guitar-shaped phoenix...a balance--between formlessness and structure, melody and cacophony..." - Rating: A-

Q (6/02, p.123) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...MURRAY STREET is an essay in coolly assured, sophisticated leftfield rock...full of scintillating tunes....A lightness of touch that renders this their finest album since DAYDREAM NATION."

Uncut (1/03, p.97) - Ranked #63 in Uncut's "100 Best Albums of the Year"

The Wire (06/02, p.53) - "...A joyful return to their No Wave hardcore rock roots with a vibrating set of muscular songs which glide effortlessly from gooey power pop to full on guitarmageddon meltdown..."

CMJ (12/30/02, p.8) - Ranked #1 (Album of the Year) on CMJ's "Top 10 of 2002"

CMJ (1/6/03, p.20) - Included in CMJ's list of "Top 25 College Radio Albums of All Time"

CMJ (6/24/02, p.5) - "...The strongest rock disc the group has churned out since at least the mid-'90s, and it marks a turnabout from the free-form experimentation of their recent work..."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/02, p.92) - "...A disc that interweaves their populist and elitist obsessions with more balance and cohesion than ever..."
