AllMusic Review by

Mates of State musically resembles springtime weather -- warm and playful -- and is easily one of the catchiest pop releases since Quasi's Field Studies. And noting that Mates of State also use the minimal technique of male/female vocals, keyboard, and drums, comparisons to the aforementioned two-piece are unavoidable. But regardless of who sounds like who, both "It's the Law" and "Invitation Inn" stand out as two essentials of pure pop perfection.
