Final Thoughts:

I don’t really view An Odd Entrances as an album by Thee Oh Sees, I don’t think it’s meant to be anything more than a companion piece to A Weird Exits, almost a couple tracks to add to that album more than anything. So no wonder it didn’t score well, what with Dwyer’s mood of getting a little too jammy for my liking as of late, and the limited number of tracks worth revisiting. That isn’t to say An Odd Entrances doesn’t have its charm, actually there are times where you can really hear influences from the likes of Boston, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones, but all in all it’s just an afterthought, it’s not an album that many Oh Sees fans should list among their favourites.
