One of 2002's top CDs of the year. Nada Surf has ditched their weird poppy "Popular" for thoughtful, intricate songwriting. Last 3 tracks are terrific.

"Let's face it...if you mention Nada Surf to someone, they are either going to bring up the song "Popular" or say "Nada who?" But you won't find a more consistently good pop album by a group with "Nada" in the name...or any group for that matter. This band is definitely evolving in the right direction. The vocals on several songs are very reminiscent of Semisonic's Dan Wilson and several songs like "Hi-Speed Soul" and the rocking "The Way You Wear Your Head" sound like they could easily fit on an early Semisonic album. But what separates Nada Surf are great songs like "Blizzard of '77" and "Inside of Love." And unlike most bands, Nada Surf saves one of the best for last with "Treading Water", which shifts from straight rock to more introspective, melancholy pop. There are quite a number of ballads on the album that deserve close attention. But the group mixes them up with the more upbeat stuff so that there is never a dull moment. A fine effort that is not to be missed."
Highlight of the resurging Indie scene (4 STARS)

"2001 and 2002 partly gave it's life to the then "Up-and coming" nu-metal genre, while the latter half of 2002 was reserved for the NY-sludge-garage-punk of the White Stripes and the Strokes. 2003 now has seen it's share of bands put out stripped-down Indie outings, like Wilco's "Foxtrot," Stephen Malkmus's "Pig Lib" and even the Jayhawks new "Rainy Day Music." But who is to trust in this resurfacing scene? Should we stay with the more pompous, arrogance of the Vines? Or get sucked into the uneducated political whining of Coldplay? Perhaps this CD will save your musical life....Nada Surf's "Let Go" cannot be defined (without arguement) in a single genre. It's pop-rock, indie-rock, NY Underground, etc. But one thing is sure... It's good. Really really good. Nada surf shake off it's one-time buzz bin MTV wonder award to join the rest of us on earth and release an album with heart, soul, and unavoidable catchiness. "Blizzard of '77" and "Inside of Love" have enough acoustic charm to blow Ben Harper away, while "Hi-Speed Soul," "Happy Kid" and "The Way You Wear Your Head" are poppy, indie rockers. Nada Surf even tip their hat to former folky great Bob Dylan on "Blonde on Blonde." "Let Go" takes the listener to blistering hights of food storage, bilingual splendor, to a run-in with a pair of LDS missionaries (and the meaning of life), and almost shapes up to be a classic in the meantime. A fantastic album.Overall: 8 out of 10."
