The first record after changing the band's name from Manitoba to Caribou, Dan Snaith delivers on The Milk of Human Kindness
a heavy set of his most developed music to date, touching on influences as distinct and impressive as Neuand Soft Machine. Full of life and tasteful production/instrumentation, this art record's got antlers, though still progresses like a more delicate animal.
A kaleidoscopic whirl of retro-futuristic sounds...never less than brimming with ideas...this is technological cut'n'paste with a heart. -- Q Magazine, May 2005
Snaith has created an album that feels like a truly cherished item from the moment you put it on. -- NME, April 2005
The Milk Of Human Kindness is another joyful, inventive and eccentric twist on [Caribou's] superb lo-fi electronica stylings. -- Pan B Magazine, May 2005
Underpinned by smart arrangements, production and intricate rhythms, TMOHK bubbles with life-affirming joy and quality. -- DJ Magazine, March 2005
