    An impressive debut that crackles with vitality. [May 2011, p.112]

    There's none of the narcotised throb of Yuck here: Mazes play with real vim, and aren't inclined to let their songs loiter unnecessarily.

    Amid the deferential nods, Mazes exude vigour and vibrancy.

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

    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]
  7. 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.
