"THE ALBUM OF 2011. the band continues to craft their sound and evolve while remaining to their style of sunny jangle pop and their are some real gems on this one. i have a feeling we're going to be hearing about these guys for a long time to come."

"it's hard to release a worthy follow-up album when you release a near perfect album the first time around. i'm glad to say they have came back with a strong album that shows growth and proves these guys are the real deal and won't be leaving the limelight anytime soon"

"after a stellar debut album, michelle nolan (formerly of straylight run) and crew create an even more solid album full of folky, retro, blissful pop tunes that leans into classic sounding country territory at times and it is just amazing. such a shame this band isn't as big as dum dum girls or best coast..i guess their is just too much soul here for people to handle"
