    A Thousand Heys plays so much like the product of a band wigging out in a garage you can almost smell the Castrol GTX. [Jun 2011, p.119]

    A Thousand Mazes almost transcends its influences. Almost. [May 2011, p.91]

    A Thousand Heys reeks of wrong-side-of-the-pond, washed-out lo-fi revival as much as the vocals.

    here's no escaping the fact that although Mazes are quite capable of a good tune, there's often very little to separate one track from the next.
  5. Under The Radar
    May 27, 2011
    The Manchester, England band Mazes prefers to record live and quickly, and their hit-it-and-quit ethos serves them well on this debut LP. [May 2011, p.88]

    It's as though Mazes don't take their own shtick very seriously. Which begs the question: why should we?
  7. Apr 20, 2011
    They've got all the right footnotes and they know their way around a hook, but A Thousand Heys doesn't carve out a distinctive enough place for itself amid this year's crop of guitar-wielding miscreants.
  8. 50
    It's a out of focus Polaroid, a soggy Pollock demonstration, or, to stick with the name, an unfavorable maze. Given its short time, it's unlikely you'll write home about this one.
