Album Notes
Aversion Magazine:
The Melody Unit's fuzzy psychedelic pop is one of those things whose charms should be pretty apparent no matter what musical climate from which it springs.

LA Weekly / Launch.com
In the spirit of bands like Stereolab, the latter-day Feelies, and Speed The Plough, this Seattle-based quintet has mastered the subtle art of crafting gentle, melodic pop tunes.

Virtual tourists in their own home, Seattle's The Melody Unit continue to float in their own direction, unfortunately below the radar of popularity in their home town. This five-piece outfit plays simple, melodic, boy-girl pop music bolstered by a slew of pulsating, atmospheric keyboards.

Ink 19:
For fans of drifting, candy-sweet, indie pop, this is a five-star album. And when I survey from the vantage offered by the year's fast-approaching end, I would even go so far as to say Choose Your Own Adventure is surely one of the best of 2001.

All Music Guide:
Rating: 5 stars
Choose Your Own Adventure is the second full-length release from Seattle underground dream-pop band The Melody Unit. There is an interesting fairly tale/fantasy tint to this music which is quite unique, particularly to the Seattle music scene.

Parasol Records:
This Seattle outfit's sumptuous space-pop-folksongs are wrapped in a lush ambience, in a tropical psychedeliciousness, in dense layers of blissful keys and guitars and guitars (lotsa guitars) and sighing male and female dream-voices.

The Melody Unit allow their fuzzy sound to bleed outside the lines. A song like "Nutation" takes the psychedelic ether of, say, the Electric Prunes, and makes it into a chiming, whirring, floating pop masterpiece.
