    Augustines is a record that was born to run, taking hearts along with it as it goes, and is, to these ears, one of the great rock records of recent years.

    This is bigger, bolder, and better in every respect. [Mar 2014, p.97]
  3. Ostensibly an album about finding hope and navigating through the pathways of solace, Augustines is a shimmering, first-rate slice of pensive and passionate indie-rock.

    It resonates as the work of a band with the chops to translate thoughtful material into a powerful and purposeful force. [1 Feb 2014, p.53]

    It all combines to form a truly sublime album of heart-wrenching, heart-warming beauty.

    After years of striving, makes Augustines a band that now sound energised by palpable relief. [Apr 2014, p.69]

    While this maximalist approach might conceivably work well live, on record it often feels overblown, overwhelming and ultimately exhausting. [Mar 2014, p.108]

    I wasn't a fan of the Augustines before, in fact I I'd never even heard of them. This was a reco from a friend that sat "un-listened to" forI wasn't a fan of the Augustines before, in fact I I'd never even heard of them. This was a reco from a friend that sat "un-listened to" for about a year. Big mistake. Big. This is easily one of the best albums I've heard in a while - McCarthy's vocals took a sec to wrap my head around, but the tunes... Man, they just sweep you up and take you on anthemic trip. Big, emotional, rewarding. Expand
