"Perhaps it was a year of touring, most recently with Wilco, or perhaps it is this combination of players, but the album brims with confidence. These songs are remindful of those written in the 70's, when blues and country blues were more prevalent influences on groups, like Fleetwood Mac or the Stones. The creative percussive touches, guitar treatments, and technical glitchery give the album it's distinct sound. The highly imaginative lyrical imagery is multi-leveled, open to more than one interpretation, Califone finds absurdity and liberation in the dark side of life, Quicksand/Cradlesnakes is rugged and elegant, dark and optimistic, familiar end entirely new. In a word it is beautiful."
