Uncut (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "WHITEY ALBUM is an excuse for some mesmeric forays into abstract dub/rock turbulence..."The Wire (p.63) - "[A]s zeitgeisty a record as Sonic Youth ever made. It's a response to the 80s celebrity machine; the emergent, technicolour possibilities of the sampler, to a New York music scene..."Melody Maker (5/4/96, p.58) - "...contain[s] the plain groovy, avant-bubblegum, hip hop rock perversion of Madonna's `Into The Groove'..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.121) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Youth were augmented on this entertaining and inventive mish-mash by J Mascis on guitar and bass player Mike Watt."0.2650523

Q (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- [With] infectious melodies....'Lovers Who Uncover' chugs with the energy of early Strokes....Definitely ones to watch."Uncut (p.91) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir hidden depths slay you off guard....'Oh, MJ!' has a Hall & Oates groove, and stadium-era Fleetwood Mac flavour to the coda."Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Sonic Youth-lite guitars of 'Lovers Who Uncover' and 'Cha Cha Cha' are pleasantly melodic."0.2650523

Spin (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Their previous three albums were marvels of sublime prog pop, and there's more of the same here, with the stately piano and rarified vocal harmonies of 'How We Breathe'..."Alternative Press (p.162) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A driving, mid-tempo cruise launches AUTUMN with a rolling melody and a staccato chorus invoking a fascinating collision of 'Catholic Block'-style Sonic Youth and the Buzzcocks."0.2650523

Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Rave-downs like 'Time to Send Someone Away' and the rather gorgeous 'Teardrop' are built on unconventional melodies that wander like idle thoughts and churning acoustic figures that recall Sonic Youth's milder riffs."Uncut (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Enchanting....[With] dog-eared melancholy....If his life has got easier, those blues still remain, and they serve him well."Magnet (p.96) - "Gonzalez is a romantic at heart, given to an array of lyrical possibilities even as his music ripples with the taut simplicity of someone strumming alone in his bedroom."0.2650523
