Christgau On the Meadowlands

Robert Christgau examines the current indie scene for the Village Voice, focusing on indie music's disdain for pop, and has some well-deserved kind words for the Wrens:

For the Wrens, pondering how far talent and dedication have gotten them, growing older brings with it the temptation of hermeticism. Only what a denouement—then they can't help buoying, pacing, shaping, and articulating their obscurities till they mean all over again. The Meadowlands is a real winner and a magnum opus. It's the Wrens' way of convincing us they're too good for actually existing pop.
