Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's louder and somewhat less twisty than the group's indie output..."

Spin (p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Brock's pop instincts have never been more refined....It's a road-trip sing-along album not for vacationers, but for escapees."

Entertainment Weekly (p.58) - "Brock has never sounded more charismatic, or chameleonlike, as he alternately croons, spits, and bronchially howls through lyrics..." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.128) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Marr dazzles throughout....Modest Mouse show no signs of sinking into the quagmire of mainstream orthodoxy...A fantastic voyage."

Alternative Press (p.145) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Brock and his bandmates have filled the album with the kind of guitar-heavy dirges and poignant ballads that long ago turned them into blue-collar indie-rock gods."

Q (Magazine) (p.87) - Ranked #11 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007" -- "[L]oosely based around a nautical theme, it conjures up visions of a grunge Talking Heads..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Isaac Brock's vocal histrionics and Marr's itchy guitar scrawl provide a backdrop for cryptic, neurotic lyrical intrigue, but they're also capable of a cute romantic ballad..."
