Consumer Guide Reviews:

Garfield [Rough Trade, 2002]
As co-auteur of the Moldy Peaches, Adam Green specialized in childish id. On his solo debut he indulges his adolescence somewhat more provokingly than thousands of acen-fighting guitar guys before him. At its best, in titles like "Dance With Me" and "Computer Show," this is a conventional if adenoidal new (a/k/a "anti") folk album. At its worst, it's bratty for its own sake. Lines like "The lump behind the sheet is where the tumor took a shit" are just begging for us to say yuck, so let's. [Rolling Stone: 2]
