  1. Alternative Press
    80
    All Aboard Future--for all its dystopian doom--somehow shakes out as the first truly modern punk record of 2009. [Apr 2009, p.133]
  2. Uncut
    80
    Although less exhausting than their debut, "Terrific Sounds," this remains an attention-demanding record. [Apr 2009, p.101]
  3. 80
    The result is a thrilling, hyperpercussive collection of laptop ditties mixed so cleverly that they'll sound great ticking through earbuds or booming out of dad's trusty Cerwin-Vegas.
  4. These Are Powers are trying to find their way while building their form as formless as possible.
  5. Their catchier material that front-loads the record is so distinct and stunning, however, that it's hard not to be left wanting more after those opening tracks.
  6. 60
    I'm inclined to say that they've reached a midpoint in experimentation where they can claim to be boundary-pushers and trendsetters, yet have done little in untried methodology, an undeserved sense of achievement.
  7. On All Aboard Future, These Are Powers’ songs distract from the music. Consequently, the record sputters.
