All Music Guide - Jimmy Draper
Recorded in fits and starts from 1999 to 2001, the debut by the Magic Magicians -- which includes the Black Heart Procession's Joe Plummer and 764-HERO's John Atkins -- is an unfortunately inconsistent effort despite the enormous talent of both artists involved.

So knowing the band's potential to create wonderfully moving and beautiful soundscapes, it's frustrating that most of these ten tracks simply sound like unfocused filler. Too many songs are impossible to distinguish from one another as they blend, unnoticeably, into the next -- something which doesn't seem artistically intentional so much as the result of repetitive songwriting. Even still, at times Girls sounds so remarkably similar to 764-HERO's excellent Weekends of Sound that it should nonetheless appeal to fans of that band's walls of guitars and desperately plaintive vocals provided by Atkins.
