"The ultimate experience. Pounding, maddening rhythms; terrifying/delightful lyrics; Absurd, heartbreaking, singable, subversive. It's all here. This artistic-cultural triumph is a gift to the future."
"Linnell finally goes solo, and brings his craft back to the majesty of yore. The layers of mind-games run thicker than a CIA hall of mirrors. The propulsive songs, sounds and emotions are undeniable."
"Different from all other TMBG albums, and utterly unique in rock history. Darker, brooding, kinda depressing, but brilliant. Amazing combo of horns & mid-90's alternative-rock, among other surprises!"
"Lincoln+PinkAlbum+MiscT in one fell swoop! This is really #1 on my list if you're ready for 72 tracks of genius. Indispensable for the 19 brilliant demo tracks, unavailable elsewhere. Own it. Love it."
"The best-selling juggernaut. Slick popcraft 'n smooth production mixed w/1st rate TMBG is Their most accessible, but softens the blow too much. Flood is home to Their radio hits, but don't stop there!"
"A weirder version of Flood, but a little less focused. However, it stands as another hallmark of breakthrough creativity for the Giants. Somewhat darker than any but John Henry, almost creepy. Submit."
"Though TMBG is an incredible live act, these live recordings come off only as weak imitations of the studio standards. However, it's the only place to get the good version of First Kiss and Conquest!"
