CMJ (5/17/99, p.25) - "...Sure, [Tortoise's] gliding beats and electronics occasionally climb atop the trebly, percussive jungle gym, but the Ex's inflamed, adrenalized mood prevails throughout..."33.41848

Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Percussionists John McEntire and Dan Bitney lock into percolating, jazzy grooves with bassist Doug McCombs, and keyboardist John Herndon and guitarist Jeff Parker lay down single-note lines that bristle with angularity."Spin (pp.107-9) - "[Parker's] controlled playing, a lean thrum of pocket-lint noise, is a valued commodity in Chicago's avant-jazz underground; on IT'S ALL AROUND YOU, it gives Tortoise their 22nd-century jam-band edge." - Grade: BEntertainment Weekly (4/16/04, p.78) - "Subdued, layered rhythms leap from indie-jazz lightness to manic psychedelia, often in the same song..." - Rating: B+CMJ (4/04, p.46) - "[L]ush and intricate..."Mojo (Publisher) (4/04, p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]he sound of a band sticking to its guns....That means rich, miscellaneous percussion from Dan Bitney and Johns McEntire and Herndon, Jeff Parker's always-inventive jazz-meets-surf guitar twang and Doug McCombs's ocean bed-trawling bass."Paste (magazine) - "[T]he burbling beats, chimes, vibraphone and lushly synthesized vocals of 'The Lithium Shifts' and the dark collapse and tip-toeing starburst of 'Crust,' cut a straighter, more emotionally directive path than nearly anything in the band's catalog."24.82952

Spin (12/95, p.62) - Ranked #8 on Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums Of '95.'Spin (11/95, p.120) - 9 - Near Perfect - "...the triumphant tortoise, the musical depth-of-field that shouts `band practice'....The drugs are definitely swallowed with syrupy-sweet cocktails this time out....Manning's torch diva turns...nestle into a winking popadelic hybrid..."Option (3-4/96, p.122) - "...they carry off the simple melancholy of their songs with the courageous, well-adjusted heart that mirrors our own best qualities..."0.2678187

Uncut (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he 'contemporary classical' tag doesn't do justice to their cinematic, intense instrumental narratives; like Mogwai's, they tend to build to within an inch of breaking point."Magnet (p.93) - "'Kapsburger,' a nod to the German composer, flows gently into 'Canon,' a track whose loping rhythm section and melodica melody could be inserted into Tortoise's MILLIONS NOW LIVING WILL NEVER DIE."The Wire (p.47) - "The main strength of LANTERN is that, apart from the subtlety and invention involved in its construction, the musicians have come up with tunes to move all but the most aloof."0.2678187

Uncut (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[E]legantly turned folktronica....Frequently recorded in single takes, the better to preserve their quiet volatility."Magnet (p.100) - "The real surprise here is 'Circle None,' a lovely guitar instrumental that comes off like a missing link between Michael Hedges and Tortoise."The Wire (p.55) - "PIerce's dry yearning vocals express just enough vulnerability to offset the music's pop sophistication."CMJ (p.45) - "The drums are muffled....This allows the instrumentation and vocals to shine through..."0.2678187
