Rolling Stone (4/4/96, p.60) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Stunning tracks like `Cut -Out Witch,' `Underwater Explosions' and `Bright Paper Werevolves' sound as if they were recorded while the passion was still flowing and scribbled notebook paper was still lying on the floor of the rehearsal space..."Spin (5/96, p.104) - 6 (out of 10) - "...GBV continue to thrive on willful imperfection..."Entertainment Weekly (3/29/96, p.64) - "...singer Robert Pollard writes the best melodies around, and his lyrics are consistently breathtaking in their surrealistic beauty." - Rating: B+Alternative Press (5/96, p.78) - 4 (out of 5) - "...there are too many great songs here to digest in one sitting, with each track revealing its own peculiar charm and hook..."Option (7-8/96, p.107) - "...that they've changed their sound little to cope with their sudden hepness is to their credit: UNDER THE BUSHES, despite its purported semi hi-fi origins, sounds only vaguely more polished than, say, BEE THOUSAND, and easily as fine..."Musician (6/96, p.84) - "...GBV delivers melancholy Beatlemania through the sound of a crummy transistor radio. Still there are gems that resist the band's attempts to camouflage their brilliance..."New York Times (Publisher) (3/31/96, sec.2, p.32) - "...Robert Pollard continues to pour out songs that could hold their own as Beatles outtakes....The melodies are winsome and tied to the trusty guitars of 1960's-style Mersey beat and folk-rock. And the words mix brilliant non sequiturs with flashes of psychological clarity..."NME (Magazine) (3/23/96, p.47) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Songs so undeniably strong that most bands would pump them up into epic show-stoppers are tossed off as if they were stoned doodles. The result is a crazed, catchy and enjoyably frustrating experience..."0.3396755

Rolling Stone (3/29/01, p.63) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Finds the balance between frazzled serendipity and melodic luster that has long eluded them....making the case more persuasively than ever that these indie-pop godfathers should matter to more than just loyalists..."Spin (6/01, pp.152-3) - 7 out of 10 - "...Shamelessly charming, even bashfully moving....Pollard reveals sentiments more earned and earthbound than anything before..."Magnet (12-1/02, p.56) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2001".Magnet (4-5/01, p.75) - "...One of the band's best....reconciling Pollard's idiosyncrasies with the track-to-track consistency great rock albums demand..."CMJ (3/26/01, p.4) - "...Brilliant....it may be less esoteric and winkingly absurdist, but he's a markedly more openly honest songwriter....striking a fine balance between arena-rock and indie jangle..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.131) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[B]oasting some of Robert Pollard's most polished and sober pop."0.2882242

"It holds us because the story has a creepy fascination. Soderbergh zeroes in on an unusual crime of passion." Movieline's Hollywood Life "[A] devious and fascinating feature....The acting in BUBBLE is powerful enough to shame many of the performance in Hollywood movies." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Soderbergh deserves kudos for the note-perfect performances he gets from non-actors....[A] potent and provocative look at life unhinged." Rolling Stone "[A] fascinating exercise....A series of loosely strung-together episodes that have the flavor of real life, seen through a glass darkly." New York Times0.162361

"...A lot of fun. The sets are detailed and charming..." Sight and Sound "...The specter effects are enchanting, especially the angelic Ghost of Christmas Past whose gown floats about her like a cloud of frosty air..." USA Today "...Like the earlier three Muppet movies, it manages to incorporate the Muppets convincingly into the action....This time, they even seem to belong in Victorian London, created in atmospheric sets that combine realism and expressionism..."
