All Music Guide - Marc Ruxin
Once again, Rex continue to refine their gentle, meandering brand of emo-core indie rock. Like an Afghan Whigs on Prozac, Rex's third full length features an increased attention on the violins, mandolins and cellos that subtly accompany the quiet, drifting guitars and bass.

Unlike the off-kilter sparseness of earlier efforts, 3 reveals a Rex who fuses the rolling swagger of Palace with the prog-rock of Tortoise.
