CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Under The Radar

In the context of an album this accomplished, Ranaldo's stories resonate like holy Scripture. 

76
Beats Per Minute

Usually, having more than two Lee songs on a Sonic Youth album is considered a treat, so it’s about time we got a full set of them.

75
A.V. Club

Ranaldo may be traveling down a familiar road, but it’s with exuberance rather than teary-eyed nostalgia.

75
The 405

It has enough familiarity for Sonic Youth fans to latch on to, but it also has plenty of surprises.

70
Consequence of Sound

It’s a disc that loosely works off of the hinges of Sonic Youth’s strengths.

70
NME

Hhere are a wealth of rock gems that shine with a warm-hearted, Neil Young-like intensity.

Lee Ranaldo is as at home writing straight-laced rock songs as he is drilling holes in his guitars and attacking them with electric sanders. 

70
FACT Magazine

This is a fine collection of songs and although there is nothing here to dispel the feeling that even if this is no masterpiece, that doesn’t mean that Ranaldo won’t be producing one sometime in the near future.

52
Pitchfork

A motley assortment of Sonic Youth nods, acoustic entreaties, and cloying pop-rockers, Ranaldo's opportunity to step out of the Sonic Youth shadows and into his own proper spotlight is mostly a miss made of mediocrity.
