    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   State

    They are, purely and simply, a garage band at heart. And with Majesty Shredding they’ve undoubtedly treated us to the garage band album of the year so far

  13. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    There’s an old expression that starts by saying “if it ain’t broke…”

  14. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    If at times the recipe of ragged riffery, pounding beats and semi-shouted vocals starts to wear a tiny bit thin, the songs are never less than engaging
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   Blurt

    It's noise, but with nuance, as if Keith Richard had opted to ally himself with Pavement in their prime
