CRITIC REVIEWS

American Songwriter

Chant-along choruses, cathartic guitars and drums, and Craig Finn’s tales of disaffected Minnesota youth are all in heavy rotation on Teeth Dreams; it just seems the band has relocated their enthusiasm for this powerhouse formula.

Exclaim!

Teeth Dreams arrives to colossal expectations, but weathers them fine and showcases a band returning to form.

PopMatters

It’s the noticeable yet natural change in Finn’s worldly wise outlook that’s what is most engaging and compelling about Teeth Dreams, as his tone has developed from the wry bemusement of his best, most quotable material to the sympathetic, even poignant treatments here.
