  1. 9.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Records as essential as this one only show up a few times a year in any era
    Read Review

  2. 8.5 |   BBC

    Honeys, for all those craving old-fashioned noise rock imbued with acidic intent and an aura of relentless unpleasantness, is the genuine article
    Read Review

  3. 8.5 |   Prefix

    Honeys is the band's ultimate thesis statement, grounding their past triumphs in cruel reality that, if not buffered by their expert sense of humor, would hit too close to home too many times to count
    Read Review

  4. 8.1 |   Pitchfork

    A kickass rock record
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Scathing and brilliant, this is a new level for Pissed Jeans, a band whose name begs us not to take them seriously, while their sound demands exactly the opposite
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    You love that it pushes everything else impossibly louder and harder
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Spin

    The riffs surge and explode without ever devolving into free-noise abstraction, and drummer Sean McGuinness pounds his kit like it reneged on a bet
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    Honeys may be just another rash, blustering effort, but for the first time there’s a faint hint of accessibility seeping through the cracks
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   All Music

    When the world has you feeling trapped, Pissed Jeans are there to help you rage out for a bit while you find some perspective
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Despite Pissed Jeans' hardcore punk aesthetic and references to football and fatherhood, Honeys doesn't only explore masculine anxieties and revenge fantasies
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Pissed Jeans sure aren’t inventing a sound here, but they’re honing it to levels of almost painful intensity
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   music OMH

    A truly excellent rock record
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   DIY

    Pissed Jeans are loud, they're angry; they're buoyant, they're funny; they're introspective and melancholic. They're totally original, and of their time. They might actually be geniuses
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Scuzzy punk traditionalists or grunge revivalists? It's unimportant – Pissed Jeans are as hard to turn away from as a three-car pile-up
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   The 405

    A fucking brilliant continuum in the evolution of a band that shows the past presents the future
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   Q

    Electrifying self-disgust from US hardcore rockers. Print edition only

  17. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Pissed Jeans deliver with such panache. Print edition only

  18. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A savvy, all-inclusive slab of disenchanted rage that doesn't hold back at any juncture
    Read Review

  19. 7.9 |   Paste Magazine

    Like every Pissed Jeans album before it, Honeys is a unique balancing act of dumb and smart, as nimble as it is brash
    Read Review

  20. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    Honeys rocks in the perverse way only Pissed Jeans can, and like past releases, it’s a slab of flank steak in an indie world rife with tenderized veal
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   Entertainment.ie

    Abrasive, loud and occasionally obnoxious, but there is something more going on here that ensures Pissed Jeans will never be written off as just another bunch of kids in plaid shirts trading on borrowed riffs and rented attitude
    Read Review

  22. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Pummelling songs of Black Flag-like thump, laced with black humour. Print edition only

  23. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    Honeys succeeds well beyond a conscious-or-not acknowledgment of touchstones
    Read Review

  24. 7.0 |   NME

    A prime example of how the innovativeness of your chosen style matters not a jot, as long as you're doing it with aplomb. Print edition only

  25. 6.2 |   Bowlegs

    The howls of smalltown rage and self-loathing still echo
    Read Review

  26. 6.0 |   The Fly

    Bands trading in ugliness as an aesthetic need other qualities if they’re to avoid being a drag
