Rolling Stone magazine noted that most of the songs are "airtight groove-adelia, compact essays in twin-guitar sunshine and boyish-vocal cheer" and that the album is "muscular guitar pop with room for rambling." The Jambands.com review also says the song placement was "usually complementary, although [occasionally cluttered]" but noted that "when everything falls into place ... the disc is captivating"; Allmusic was more critical of the structure, however.
*"TGORM" is the abbreviation that moe. used to name the track on the album. While that stands for "The Ghost of Ralph's Mom" a few "music" sites have incorrectly changed the GEE to a SIX (and a ZERO instead of OH) mislabeling the song as "T60RM" instead of the correct "TGORM" (iTunes, for instance).

Still, Rolling Stone mentions that the band is a "few years and LPs away from" the transcendence that the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, and Cream were able to attain. Jambands.com seemed a bit more optimistic, saying "moe.'s songwriting has pointed towards something more mature, beyond the frolicking rave-ups of musical youth."
