Far out."Option (9-10/95, pp.114-115) - "...Hum have mastered the art of feedback, turning seemingly garbled noise into power pop ditties, all of which make YOU'D PREFER AN ASTRONAUT an engaging excursion into the intense realm of hi-energy psychedelia..."Melody Maker (5/4/96, p.55) - "...`Why I Like Robins' and `I'd Like Your Hair Long,' like `Jurassic Park,' resurrect Dinosaurs.

Rolling Stone (8/19/99, p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...his finest bag of tunes since the 1992 cult classic CAN YOU FLY...[earning] it with plush, morose ballads..."Spin (10/99, p.153) - 6 out of 10 - " insinuating downer, its cool sound lulling the listner like drugged iced tea....when he's on, he's spewing sweet venom in a tenor that's matured from a yelp into a graceful croon, he can still find new ways to be beautifully bleak..."Entertainment Weekly (8/20-27/99, p.128) - "Sometimes a clear, quiet voice can be more moving than even the most passionate belting.
