CD Sam Prekop 
Rolling Stone (3/4/99, p.88) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...an insidiously seductive exercise in chill-out cool; the best tracks brush-up against you like a gentle breeze....quiet storms from quasi-samba beats, swelling strings, cascading melodies and his own whispered vocals...this album shimmers..."Q (5/99, p.112) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...languid and burned-out, with not much singing, it's another excellent if unnervingly diffident addition to the post-rock academy..."The Wire (4/99, pp.69-70) - "...bright, shimmering quality...derived from an infusion of jazz...Muzik (4/9, p.108) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...understated triumph from America's avant-rock scene....flow into a world of mid-West ambience, elegiac acoustic pluckings and Beta-Band-on-ether fluffiness. Unusual name, strange greatness."CMJ (1/10/00, p.7) - Ranked #30 in CMJ's "Top 30 Editorial Picks [for 1999]."CMJ (2/15/99, p.5) - "...an evolutionary step for the multi-faceted musician....takes a more organic approach, employing delicate guitar interplay, resonant bass and minimal percussion..."
CD Everybody [The Sea and Cake]
Spin (p.95) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[They've] mastered a more intricate approach, seasoning their gently introspective tales of 'distracted and lazy' lovers with stronger ingredients."Alternative Press (p.151) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] machine-tooled precision stitches each member so tightly together that the seams never show, leaving only their signature warm glide of elemental recombinant pop."The Wire (p.51) - "[T]he music bursts into life and pretty much stays pepped up with an infectiously high energy level throughout. Sam Prekop's vocals are typically wistful..."No Depression (p.108) - "[T]he new disc washes in like a cool indie-pop tide, with the trademark high-whispering vocals of Prekop and a delicately layered acoustic sheen...
CD Car Alarm
Spin (p.112) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Pristine set-opener 'Aerial' and the elegantly gliding 'on a Letter' jangle and chime with mathematical precision..."Alternative Press (p.155) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Post-rock inflections, electronic embellishments, artfully designed arrangements and time changes, and the sighing vocals and breathy phrasing of guitarist/vocalist Sam Prekop. True to form, the band deliver yet again on CAR ALARM."The Wire (p.68) - "The set is dominated by neat three and a half minute packages of semi-supercharged guitar pop."Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The hot licks and cool groove of 'New Schools' are the whole record in microcosm, each play revealing subtle shades and a pleasure in the details."Clash (magazine) (p.121) - "A technically accomplished bunch of breezy West Coast pop songs perfect to listen to when the sun is setting."Clash (magazine) (p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "CAR ALARM picks right up on the coiled grooves of its predecessor with heated opener 'Aerial' and 'Fuller Moon,' which brings a taut bounce into play."Signal To Noise (magazine) (p.71) - "[T]hey sound as tight as they ever have, as if after 14 years of playing together the band has developed a kind of musical mind-meld."
