    Clearly the product of a great deal of work and expressive of a fascinating atmosphere of weight and tension, Acrobats is one of the finest returns of the year.

    Acrobats drags a bit near the end, but there's no denying that it's a huge leap forward.

    Peggy Sue's Acrobats is one of the most scattered, schizophrenic, soul questioning--and beautiful and best records of the year.

    Even with these small blips, Peggy Sue have made the transition to a darker and bolder sound with ease.

    A huge step forward for them and, hopefully, for their public perception too.

    For all the development in their sound, this new Peggy Sue is less lovable than before, the whimsy and the wit, the colour and the life a little buried, and whatever their final lyrics say, a touch too troubled now.

    The results are nearly as haunting, but the songwriting just isn't at that level yet. [Oct 2011, p.108]
