Sort Of Revolution - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 80

What it all boils down to is what Fink was looking for in the beginning, a way of telling a story plainly and intimately without overt romanticism or overuse of flowery metaphors. His limited dynamic range creates an intense, almost suffocating feeling of intimacy, and is, therefore, in its way, dramatic. The beautiful fingerpopping percussion that introduces "Q&A" combines a street-corner doo wop feel with dub reggae, gospel quartet, and even hip-hop.

And it talks about departing a dark past for a brighter future.
