4.5 superbjoplinpicasso | June 25th 11

Unwound push their social commentary through an atmospheric siphon, throwing horns, groove-based drumming, bratty punk vocals, serpentine bass lines, and guitars hanging on the fringe of noise into a blender and crafting a near-perfect, concise post-hardcore album; things don't seem all that 'civilized' once you plunge in one way and come out the other. (I might have to write a proper review)

3.5 greatErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | May 5th 20

LTIY's disc 1, and you can kinda see it as all but the first 2 tracks are experimenting with the band's established sound. This makes for the quirkiest album of an already quirky band. Quirky Unwound not the best Unwound. Apathetic Unwound good Unwound. LTYI Unwound best Unwound. 3.7

I'm not sure it's because this was the first album of theirs I heard, but I always thought this was their best work.
