Maybe like a cheerier, quirkier 10,000 Maniacs. (JoAnn Whetsell)

Recommended for fans
Edie Brickell—acoustic guitar, vocals
Tony Berg—additional guitars, keyboard, string arrangement
An okay album, but even its best songs are just okay. Not nearly as charming or memorable as Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Edie Brickell—lead vocals, electric guitar on "Wear You Down"
Bryce Goggin, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
For a band that hasn't recorded an album in 16 years, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians sound amazingly well-connected. Stranger Things isn't really like Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, but it seems a natural follow-up, far more so than Ghost of a Dog did. Maybe because this effort reflects the band being themselves. It's more adult, more varied in style, and in places still quite fun. I hope this is a new beginning for the band and not just a one-time reunion project. But even if it is, it's one to be thankful for. (JoAnn Whetsell)
