Somehow entertaining

"i have not bought any other joan of arc albums but this one, ive had it now for five months or so and the lyrics are just beginning to make some sense. they are random, and when really looked closely at, are quite whitty. example: "all this white bread makes me wonder" as far as the techo does add something to the music at times, but at others, it pulls away from the record. its hard to classify the album into any particular genre. you could place it in emo, you could place it in doesn't really matter. it sounds good, it holds your interest. realitivly simple record. ill be sure to check out their other two records down the road. mike kinsella who is in this band is also n american football and his solo persona owen. check them out too for a little cleaner voice and sound alltogether. 4 stars."
Neat record: artistic and infectious to boot

"If you've heard Cap n' Jazz, you know the vocalist. Abrasive and discordant, but somehow endearing as well; the kind of vocals that fit this music. I was a bit wary to try this record because of the supposed techno influence, but it only enhances the catchiness of these songs, adding another layer of music to the standard rock components (guitar, drums, bass) and meshing beautifully with the orchestration. The lyrics are top-notch, too. A serious progression from Cap N' Jazz in that the pop songs are much fuller than they were previously. Some of these songs (this life cumulative, to've had to of, god bless america, etc.) are simple masterpieces that keep you hooked to this record, listening to the record end over and over. If you aren't familiar with Cap N' Jazz, this record may take some getting used to, but it is well worth it."

"joan of arc is so clean. clean guitars, clean sounds, colors... its still emo but its fragmented and more sharper when they do it. its not as straightfoward as the old joan or arc release or especially its earlier focus CaP'n Jazz. this music is an acquired taste. one thing about this cd is that i wish they had more songs like "White out"... other than that just like capnjazz the lyrics are top notch, the smart guitar playing, and the busy intricate drumming with little bleeps here and there from keyboards or whatever it is. its not 303's or anything."
