AllMusic Review by

Stop the Sun... sees Tiny Lights slipping away from the folky, orchestrated pop of their excellent early work and moving into the rather cliched vein of wanky funk that mars Milky Juicy -- fortunately, the record has enough slanted constructions and deconstructive twists on the sound to keep it from seeming as banal as some of the work which followed. The sound itself, however, simply can't stand up to the band's earlier releases -- and while Stop the Sun..., with its quirky songwriting and arrangement, will surely appeal to immediate fans of Tiny Lights, it's not nearly as appealing as the band's best work from their earlier days.
