The guitar is tuned open and sings through a cranked old Fender amp, the melodic bass rolls, drums pound and the lyrical trade-off between Kaia and Caithlin is capable of puncturing a grapefruit size hole through the heart.

Without a doubt, Look Now Look Again is the definitive Rainer Maria album to own.

With the aid of Smart Studios' Mark Haines (Poster Children, Son Volt) and Elliot Dicks (Joan of Arc), Rainer Maria's second album has become a Polyvinyl classic and set the standard against which the band will always be judged.

I've tried to find a weak track on Look Now Look Again, and it's just not happening....Incredibly beautiful. [8.8]


One of the top records of 1999.

Spin Magazine
An ardent, emotionally stimulating album comprised of melodically violent music.

Good vocal interplay and well-written songs make this one a winner.


This album sees them expanding on their own unique sound with even more passion and conviction.

Motion Sickness

This record is clean, tight, and all together great.


A perfect record, both musically and lyrically. This is an album you won't soon forget.


A hands-down winner.
