"It is useless to argue that Sunbathing Animal, much like its predecessor, is fiercely innovative. Instead, it is blissfully upfront and honest about the touchstones that it pays tribute to and, despite its apparent lack of originality, bubbles with the exhilarating, flailing spirit that can simply not be taught."
