Spin (12/95, p.62) - Ranked #11 on Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums Of '95.'Spin (6/95, p.100) - 9 - Near Perfect - "...Yo La Tengo...help the literal-minded listener to focus on texture and groove, the splatter of Ira Kaplan's guitar against the pull and flow of Georgia Hubley's drums....ELECTR-O-PURA juxtaposes the intimacies of culture..."Q (7/95, p.133) - 3 Stars - Good - "...an album of uneasy contrasts and occasional brilliance which remains strangely remote and difficult to grasp."Alternative Press (8/95, p.103) - "...alternate[s] between heavy art-school distortion fuzz and laid-back Sunday afternoon drizzle. They do both so well that it doesn't really matter which you prefer; if you're willing, either will sweep you up and take you someplace nice....ELECTR-O-PURA is filled with fine songs and beautiful sounds. It's an album worth every second you listen to it."Option (9-10/95, p.146) - "...The balance of ELECTR-O-PURA is consistently outstanding, bridging the gap between tenacious and gutsy, with Yo La Tengo's modestly intuitive singing and facile playing..."Melody Maker (4/22/95, p.35) - Recommended - "...the band's seventh collection of wayward pop masterpieces....ELECTR-O-PURA deliberately trawls through the shadier corners of the guitar multiverse, opting without fail for the moments where layers of fuzz create a black hole of sound..."Village Voice (2/20/96) - Ranked #9 in Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.0.3244043
