    With A Monument they have clearly shown that the have the scope and ambition to cross over far beyond that Portland milieu and establish themselves as a fine in their own right.

    There's a lot of life here to be had, and it'll only get better.

    While Tu Fawning never quite reach the same heights of grandeur as these masters of the form [Arcade Fire and Radiohead], their ambition and their technical prowess results in an album that reveals further depths with each listen.

    As a while the songs feel less adventurous and more in line with what you'd hear from the larger crop of rustic indie rockers. [Jun 2012, p.156]

    [Lead singer, Corrina] Repp's spectral omnipresence enhances A Monument's addictive, dark-clouded atmosphere, especially when things get as chilly as later-day Radiohead and as pallid as Portishead. [Jun 2012, p.114]
