    This is the best album I've heard all year. ASIWYFA have improved their post-rock sound by adding more instruments, using more vocals and drawing inspiration from other genres.

    Simply put, this is a lovely math rock/instrumental indie rock album from the ASIWYFA. It has fun hooks reminiscent of British Sea Power. It is a melodic and beautiful mess of instrumentation, like a more human and danceable version of Battles. Easily some of the best I've heard this year.

    Repetitive chants and moments of unfettered melodic joy further bolster or confuse the situation, depending on your mindset. [Jun 2013, p.93]

    This is almost dangerously infectious stuff from ASIWYFA. [23 Mar 2013, p.54]

    All Hail Bright Futures might be ASIWYFA’s loudest and quirkiest record, but its brain remains.
