  1. 10.0 |   NOW

    Beach Slang's debut full-length is full of so much youthful energy that they make younger bands sound world-weary by comparison

  2. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    If Snyder’s goal is to get the band’s points across and accomplish that feeling of catharsis all the same, then this record sure feels like a success

  3. 9.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    The wind-tunnel production and swigging, snorting attitude mark The Replacements as Beach Slang’s totem

  4. 9.0 |   Gig Soup

    Beach Slang proves that, not only can they intelligently avoid simple imitation of the genre, but that they can draw from their cultural influences and make something fresh of it

  9. 8.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    A twenty six minute bottle that will leave you drunk, dazed, and not giving a fuck about anything besides being young and alive

  10. 8.0 |   Clash

    Beach Slang play with the kind of heartfelt abandon that you could imagine translating to wider audiences in a similar vein to The Gaslight Anthem
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    An album whose principal interest is in pinning the listener to the wall

  12. 7.9 |   Earbuddy

    Anthems for the bedroom
    Read Review

  13. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Beach Slang are a loud and fast band, and their debut is, for the most part, a loud and fast album, the power chords only stopping long enough to ring for effect

  14. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Philly rock survivors carry the Replacements’ torch high on a debut with a lot of heart and even more noise
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    Though Beach Slang are charged with a direct, oftentimes wholesome simplicity, it’s in their weathered optimism where they defiantly soar
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   Spin

    The album’s escapism is alarmingly potent
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    A unique record, one that rages with youthful vigour, but which couldn't have been made by anyone under the age of 35
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Some of the songs do blend together a bit, but repeated listens, preferably loud and accompanied by one’s preferred adult beverage, should remedy that situation
    Read Review

  19. 6.5 |   Beardfood

    You know the sound, the chords, the words, but the combination somehow makes it refreshing and honest
    Read Review

  20. 5.8 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Never once lets up on its performance of youthful exuberance. Beach Slang are young and alive, and they will never stop screaming about it
