A.V. Club

Those looking for a Magnetic Fields fix could do worse than the breezy Partygoing.


Few songwriters can capture the bleak comedy of loneliness, bitterness, and the sheer helplessness that accompanies aging than Merritt, and he does so here with great aplomb.

Consequence of Sound

If there’s a party here, it’s a wake, OMD is the house band, and Merritt is in the corner with a frown plastered on.

Stephin Merritt proves his skills as a songsmith are still sharp 20 years on.
