About this item

Rolling Stone (1/23/97, p.44) - Ranked #8 on Rolling Stone's list of the "Ten Best Albums" of 1996.
Rolling Stone (9/5/96, p.60) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...[Sebadoh's] best album to date....'Willing To Wait' is, hands down, [Lou Barlow's] finest (if unhappiest) hour....Edited down to just Barlow's songs and the best of [Jason] Loewenstein's, HARMACY would be a near-perfect album. As it is, it's merely wonderful..."
Spin (9/96, p.147) - 8 (out of 10) - "...HARMACY finds Barlow and his bandmates still parked on relationship lane. And they would give everything they own just to have you back again....[Sebadoh] maintain their status as champions of the private moment..."
Q (9/96, p.120) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...they cover the history of US indie pop...telling tales of teenage folly for the post-Generation X generation, with scenes played out in the bedrooms, through cable TV shows and on the skateboards of the new guitar pop fan."
Alternative Press (10/96, p.103) - 3 (out of 5) - "...neurotically hooky indie rock, heart-soaked balladry..."
Option (11-12/96, pp.128-129) - "...a rich, hook-filled record that justifies much of their acclaim. HARMACY's 19 tunes run from thrashing rock to melodic indie pop, and are almost uniformly wonderful....Enjoyably loose without turning self-indulgent..."
Melody Maker (8/17/96, p.48) - Recommended - "...And say you actually wanted, on a what-the-hell kind of day, to Experience Sebadoh. What would you pick to start? Well, simple, this one. HARMACY, in brief, is what I shall wave triumphantly from now on..."
Musician (9/96, p.86) - "...HARMACY proves that a good melody conquers all....[Lou Barlow's] confident tunesmithing belies the hesitant introspection....Jason Lowenstein actually grabs a larger share of the writing credits...but it's Barlow's eight tunes that provide the dramatic weight..."
Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #36 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.
NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #38 in NME's 1996 critics' poll.
NME (Magazine) (8/17/96, p.52) - 6 (out of 10) - "...ironically, Sebadoh have just made a very British album....it...starts off pretty stupendously, with a trio of songs...that can only be described as 'gorgeous'....The 19 tracks here are studded with quicksilver pop gems..."
