Uncut (12/02, p.142) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A breathy, fragile 'soft-rock' suite full of dewy, melodic '60s pop allusions..."Magnet (1/03, pp.107-8) - "...The sounds here are so soft they almost disappear....The melodies are beautiful..."CMJ (12/02, p.61) - "...SOFT SOUNDS...constitutes a change in course, trading the band's noisier touchstones for more delicate '60s reference points..."93.98181

Alternative Press (4/97, p.76) - 4 (out of 5) - "Less power and more pop than Velvet Crush....simple, clean strumming...with shambling sound and wide-eyed romanticism. All eleven Menck ballads at once might cause cavities. But taken in small doses, there is some magnificent, timeless pop music here."0.5904041

Uncut (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[A]n album both luminous and agreeably bleak....Chastain's depressive vocals and Menck's madcap drumming have few equals..."Magnet (p.128) - "[There's] much sonic power behind the pop on STEREO BLUES..."CMJ (p.49) - "With STEREO BLUES, Velvet Crush has finally made an album that keeps with its pigeonhole. And rather than a concession, it sounds like a gem."0.4920034

Spin (12/95, p.125) - 7 (out of 10) - "...an almost Hawthornian Gothic. Linkous broadcasts his perambulatory figures and `Dear Prudence' balladry from some right scary places....a tremolo crush of organs, tape loops, and fuzz vocals--like listening to the Velvet Underground in the cells of Angola..."Option (1-2/96, p.118) - "...engaging triumphs of low fidelity, but the sound is not `lo-fi' per se. Clear, sparse guitar lines drift along soft rhythms on most tracks, with off-kilter instrumental flourishes erupting every so often..."Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #20 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's `Albums Of The Year.'Melody Maker (5/11/96, p.49) - Bloody Essential - "...Fanbloodysoaraway heedlessheartachetastic....my oh my, the boy's songs are fine....Lavishness beyond hoping for in 16 brief tracks and a million ideas: a gobsmackingly confident debut album without a bad idea..."NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #10 in NME's 1996 critics' poll.NME (Magazine) (5/4/96, p.56) - 9 (out of 10) - "...Songs that are as fragile as a bouquet of rotting roses, heavy American gothic masterpieces delivered so hushed you can hear a feather drop....unconditionally recommended to all those who feel that life just might be one bad joke..."0.1743218
