  1. 8.0 |   Northern Transmissions

    While the singles on the album are definitely worth every second of your time, the entire endeavour as a whole makes these individual songs feel even stronger. Kind of like The Goon Sax themselves, three talented artists on their own but even more special together

  10. 6.0 |   All Music

    There is enough craft to the songwriting, energetic verve in the performances, and painful truth in the lyrics that the album is worth listening to, and the band is worth sticking with if only to see where they go from here
