  1. 8.5 |   Paste Magazine

    It’s impossible to deny that not only has Silversun Pickups definitely arrived at their own sound, but that they’re one of very few bands around who is finding new ground to break in a genre that most have given up for dead

  5. 7.0 |   Pop Matters

    Even in their least inspired moments, Silversun Pickups have something interesting on offer

  6. 7.0 |   Entertainment.ie

    Rock music has been short of true innovators for some time now, and while this isn’t exactly a game changer, there is plenty here to suggest that the Pickups are finding their own voice, and making inventive, exciting music along the way

    If there were a study guide on how rock can survive in the digital age, this would be it

  8. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Dance beats undergird the Pumpkins power-pop of "Gun-Shy Sunshine" and "Busy Bees," while songs like "The Pit" recall the sheer, synthed-up alt-rock Garbage

  9. 6.0 |   A.V. Club

    Neck Of The Woods may not coax many new fans to the Pickups’ newly appointed Camp Crystal Lake, but it gives those already there something dark and sinister to mull over

  10. 6.0 |   State

    A mellow record which explores some promising new directions, but nothing with enough magnitude to outdo their previous efforts

  11. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The most successful tracks see the band trying something either completely new or simply sticking to their 90s alt-rock guns

  12. 5.0 |   Blurt

    If you're looking for a record that feeds your need for nostalgia, for a time when loud/quiet/loud songs ruled the land, then pick up Neck of The Woods

  13. 4.8 |   Pitchfork

    Boasts all the hallmarks of a big-budget, radio-ready modern-rock record

  14. 4.0 |   Prefix

    Movie-trailer fodder, apple-store crescendos
