Spin

Syd Barrett to the Animal Collective's Pink Floyd, the Grizz offer tender and creepy folk mantras that function as a Paxil substitute or antidote, depending on your disposition.

AllMusic

This is the kind of album you'll want to listen to late at night, perhaps a few sheets to the wind, with the lights off and headphones on to allow these creepy, quiet little tunes to worm their way into your subconscious.

NOW Magazine

A sprawling 14-track collection of moody bleep folk filled with telephone-booth vocals, found-sound percussion and languid acoustic fugues.

Pitchfork

The gentlemen of Grizzly Bear paw around in wholly distinct regions of gentle, nocturnal psych-folk, conjuring visions of an imagined bedroom collaboration between the Doug Yule-era Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and a pajama-clad Pooh with his head jammed in a honey jar.

Kinda appealing, but not very special or memorable; some random indie band could produce the same album....Especially glad to see that they redefined their sound on later albums like Yellow House and Veckatimest (which are very good btw.)

"A Good Place", "Eavesdropping", & a few others but as a whole very lackluster and thematically empty.
