Exquisite pop songs by the finest New Zealand band
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beautiful melodies, tremendous song craftmanship and amazingly catchy guitar/vocal hooks - this is the best BATS album and I've heard all of them. Unlike the comment below, I don't think it's much of a departure from their earlier stuff, it just sounds like a band on top of their form (track 4 - work it out - sounds like "fear of god" but it's even better) Yes, THE BATS are the best band from New Zealand - better than THE CLEAN, THE CHILLS, THE 3DS, THE DEAD C et all. AFTERNOON IN BED might be the finest track but there are so many great tunes on this album it's hard to rank them. (...) Anyone who likes intelligent pop music will love this album."
A real change for the Bats
Robert Quinn | St. Paul, MN United States | 07/04/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album represents a real change for the Bats. Rather than the jangly pop sound so typical of the Bats on all their previous albums (and of other New Zealand bands like the Chills), this album is trancy and dreamy. But it still has some really good and catchy melodies at its core. And good lyrics too. It works really well. This should be of interest not only to fans of the Bats (and New Zealand Rock in general), but to those whose tastes run more towards American indie rock."
