Pitchfork: an 8.1
Stylus: an A-
Prefix: 4.0/5.0

Rajeev One Louder lists it in his top 5 albums of 2005 so far (with MP3), though they and others have said The Juan McLean is not worth seeing live. If you want to find out for yourself, you can see them free Saturday night at Tribeca Grand in NYC or at Rothko Thursday night.

Deviated Septum says the album is painfully boring.
