"Os Os is much more accessible than the album notes would have you believe, juxtaposing ambient electronic pieces with catchy, mellow pop songs. It’s a strange combination, but Finley makes it work, using the serious-sounding instrumental passages to bookend his more lighthearted guitar-driven vocal turns.
Opener “Base Camp Departure” combines the best of both styles, starting with hissing electronic noise, then adding a staticlike hum around which a noodling, sweetly upbeat acoustic guitar curls. The disc’s highlight, “The Sky Is Falling,” churns along on guitar strum and high-hat, while Finley’s easy soprano references the Book of Revelation and the Beatles in the same sentence. “Linus” is an oddly serious homage to the anxiety-ridden Peanuts character where Finley wonders if cartoonist Charles Schulz’s death will force Linus to drop the blanket and move on with his life"
