"Rampantly eclectic but cohesively sequenced, this is a record that holds together strongly as a collection of interconnected set-pieces, featuring moments of both fierce embattlement and calming release.  Most noticeable on preliminary spins are a raucous string of seething but intelligent epics; specifically the allegorical politically-frustrated Fugazi-via-Full House-era-Fairport-Convention channelling of “Horse,” the Last Harbour-meets-Shellac personal despair of “This Is How I Cut My Own Throat” and the sprawling chamber-folk-rock of “Things Are Sticky.”  Digging further in, more intimate and sonically pared-back moments can be found, such as the forlorn relationship anxiety examinations of “Tethered Not Caged,” the almost Shakespearian romance of “We Are In Water” and the macabre metaphorical acid-folk trip of “Magpie.

[T]his is an album for all discerning lovers of imaginative songs straight from the head, the heart and the gut." - Delusions of Adequacy
