What the critics say...

Rolling Stone (12/25/03, p.110) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2003"
Rolling Stone (8/21/03, p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[Steele] leads his troops through a heady mix of sunburnt psychedelia, Velvet Underground grooves, alt-country twang, New Wave paranoia and late-era Beatles of the best debuts of the year..."
Spin (11/03, p.117) - "...Juicing fragile melodies with weeping George Harrison guitar, frontman Luke Steele is pretty even-keeled for a spaced-out pop maestro..." - Grade: B+
Q (01/01/04, p.79) - Ranked #26 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003" - "[Mingles] touching lyrics with lilting country, spoken word, choral refrains, and ever-so-slightly outdated production techniques [for] an endearingly off-kilter collection."
Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #46 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"
Uncut (8/03, p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A sun-dappled, idiosyncratic delight, flooded with warmth and vitality, yet weighted by an undefinable sadness....The Sleepy Jackson's muse is dreamy and distinctive, their LOVERS a star-crossed triumph..."
