Rolling Stone (p.60) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The latest dispatch from Planet Conor weaves the weird knowledge he's accrued over the years into a rich, sprawling, fragmented record....He manages to be everything at once: folkie and punk, old soul and eternal boy, high-plains drifter and hipster heartthrob."Spin (p.76) - "THE PEOPLE'S KEY proves Oberst has learned to balance a cutting perspective with a bleeding heart."Alternative Press (p.98) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "From the blast-beat breaks during 'Jejune Stars' to the laid-back Grandaddy vibe of 'Triple Spiral' and the philosophical piano ballad 'Ladder Song,' THE PEOPLE'S KEY adds some new elements..."CMJ - "The brilliance of the album is taking individual phrases and matching them with perfect tonal or dynamic shifts.
