Recorded old-school to 2" tape and marketed heavily to the vinyl crowd, the album features the music of Folds, the words of Hornby, and the string arrangements of Paul Buckmaster.

Professional Reviews

Mojo (Publisher)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Intelligent, funny, heartbreaking alt-rock, Hornby lyrics, music and vocals by Folds....An album of 11 tiny novels that play themselves."

Clash (magazine)
- "Sublime strings from legendary Bowie arranger Paul Buckmaster provide a charming gloss, while 'Your Dogs' is an alarmingly accurate rendering of early Elvis Costello."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Hornby spins loose vignettes into rich narratives....The majority of the album compares favourably with Folds' best work and represents a compelling return to form..."
