    one of the more notable jumps in quality between a first and second album over the last decade

    my favorite album of all time. Still floors me everytime I listen to it

    Very dense, very desolate, but very beautiful. It's like a depressed, alcoholic version of shoegaze.

    One of my favourite albums so far.

    I was thinking about that just yesterday, but when I first heard this album last summer my favorite thing to do was to listen to it right around dusk in some woods. I highly recommend this.

    It feels weird listening to this album not in the middle of winter. It's still amazing though.

    Great album, I hear quite a bit of Sonic Youth influence on most tracks.

    one of the finest "canadian" albums ever produced.... i don't say that lightly! the only better one that comes to mind is "simply saucer - cyborgs revisited" and that was released to zero acclaim in like 1974!

    I just loved this album from my first listen and throughout the year I kept coming back to it. It reminds me of a couple of bands I love but it carves its own nook into my brain.

    A very fine release.

    This record is a weird masterpiece. I do not use that word lightly. Easily my #1 record of 2010, and that's saying something, considering the competition.

    I think it's crazy that they wrote the perfect compliment to their first album. They are both so good on their own, but Public Strain makes me like their self-titled even more.
