This is easily my favorite album of 2001.
There is nothing ground breaking about this album. But it has found its own way through the possibilities that a standard American rock band setup offers.
The one great strength is that the melodies and singing are exceptionally warm and the songs immaculately crafted. That is why Know By Heart fell right into my life and my heart. Its warmth helped me through the cold, dark and wet autumn. And that warmth will help me many years to come. Beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Indie's Most Overloooked Outfits 17 Jan 2005
By Paul H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The American Analog Set makes some of the most lovely low-key indie rock, a mixture of warm strummed guitar, steady beats, vibes, analog synths, and Andrew Kenny's whisper of a voice. The unassuming songs are perfect tools for unwinding, but despite the subdued tones, the record never bores. The ironically-titled opener "Punk As F*ck" is a great place to start, while "The Postman," "The Kindness Of Strangers," "Million Young," and "Aaron And Maria" meld the quieter moments of Yo La Tengo with jazzy undertones lifted from Tortoise and other post-rock outfits. Know By Heart is not so much revolutionary as it is just simply strong and affecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars their best yet? 5 Sep 2001
By matt wishnow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
3 albums into a career defined by gorgeous, minor chord drones and no-tempo jams that are reminiscent of the feelies and yo la tengo more than stereolab (to whom they are often compared), aas return with a daring new album of concise, beautiful songs. know by heart is one of the best albums of 2001. long time fans will want to spend a little extra time with this album toget used to the increased guitar and bass and the decreased organ but repeated listens will provide wonderful rewards.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those looking for a bit of fresh air 26 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was looking for something new that I could really fall in love with. The sound of this record is amazing, and it shows some of the finest production I have seen for this band. If you like progressive rock and a new sound in your ears get this album. I am sure fans of Yo La Tengo, Wilco, Minus 5,and My Morning Jacket will love this album just for its feel. Even though this album tends to get lower ratings than the other albums, it is a better introduction into their music and in my opinion one of their best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sending me a postcard from the sands.... 7 Nov 2003
By cplewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is AmAnSet's most easily accessible album, by far. It features a couple of instantly catchy short pop songs as well as some instrumentals and longer pieces -- definitely a culmination of their growth as musicians through all their albums and EPs up to this point.
The American Analog Set is definitely a band to be experienced live -- as beautiful as this album is, seeing them perform these songs live (and completely CLICK as a live band, flowing from one song to the next smoothly and effortlessly) will bring the music to a whole different level. [Also note: any band that tours with a vibraphone has my undying support!]
For the record, one of my friends deemed this the "makeout album of the year", which is probably the best description you'll ever hear. Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars where the heck have i been?!? 20 Jan 2002
By Linda Y. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i can't believe the AmAnSet have been around since 1996, but i didn't hear their music until i got 'know by heart.' where the heck have i been? this album is by far one of the best of 2001. it flows from beginning to end, with great melodies, lyrics and rhythm. fans of Yo La Tengo, The Sea and Cake, Modese Mouse, and Tristeza would dig this. i am now on a quest to get all of AmAnSet's albums.
