Life Is Full of Possibilities
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 24, 2011
Label: Sub Pop

by Mike Powell

In 2001 this was one portrait of the future: a laptop producer and a series of indie-pop vocalists conspiring to make listeners weep into their scarves. In reassembling the vocalists' confessions into mosaics and kaleidoscopes, Jimmy Tamborello made them believable, as his supporting beats click, thump, and glitter. At worst, it's precious; at best, it's wide-eyed, fragmented, and unreachably sad.
