"It sounds like a record that they could have released 20 years ago... There aren't many bands that were once really big that break up, get back together and find that original magic. It just doesn't really happen very often, but this is a band that I think has found that original magic, and this is a great-sounding record." — NPR's All Songs Considered
"Reunions don't usually work out this well." — Rolling Stone
"A catalogue that only seems to grow stronger." — SPIN
