The Magnetic Fields "I"
Nonesuch, 2004

All Music Guide
Merritt's kitchen produces pop confections that can rot teeth, but the bitter aftertaste owes more to Randy Newman than it does Belle & Sebastian.

Many of the witty, lovelorn pop songs here can stand beside any in Merritt's formidable catalogue.

The Guardian
Merritt's lugubrious baritone has never sounded stronger, nor have his songs.

Drowned In Sound
Similar to Ben Folds and Aimee Mann, Merritt revives the lost art of inventing captivating fictions entwined with personal reflection.

Granted, the record is far from perfect... Despite all of that, it is a Stephin Merritt record. And SM still maintains his charmingly cynical worldview and almost bottomless well of clever turns of phrase.
