AllMusic Review by

The Semibeings lie in the half of Shimmydisc artists who don't rely entirely on Kramer's production aesthetics to sound great -- Sickness and Health opens with rich sweeps of acoustic guitars that recall the Feelies' best work, then winds its way through a variety of very post-Velvet Underground tracks that are occasionally quite wonderful. The band falters a bit more often than one might wish, but between their better moments and the spacious sound Kramer lends to the record, things turn out sound rather great.
