"...It's an album that reveals its charms through repeat listens, and makes a listener wonder how the band can master so many different musical styles via so many vocalists while still maintaining a fiercely cohesive sound" (

"... On an album this consistently enjoyable, it's difficult to pick out highlights-- especially considering that highlights aren't something the band seems at all concerned with: the record is constructed and assembled with such cohesiveness that individual moments within songs stand out and raise the bar from infectious pop fun to raw glory. Take, for example, the sublime, Brian Wilson-inspired bridge on the bouncy, Bejar-chirped "Jackie", which features three vocal tracks harmonizing in rounds, singing, "Are you gonna start the sunshine?"
...Make no mistake, The New Pornographers are a brazen bunch. Their pop is saccharine, and at times, even smarmy. It's over-the-top, but not quite beautifully absurd. Nonetheless, it makes me nostalgic for the days when "all ages" was a blessing, and adult theaters were something I'd only dreamed of-- a time when 60 Foot Dolls could be seen on days other than Thanksgiving, and Kenicke was, like, the best band name ever.
