    AFI bassist Hunter Burgan and My Chemical Romance touring drummer Jarrod Alexander lend their talent making for a textured record that combines Skiba's trademark dark-tiged punk sensibilities with an electronic edge inspired by '80s new wave. [Jun 2012, p.83]

    All the songs here are concise and to-the-point.

    Perhaps a little of the sparkle the absent Alkaline Trio two bring is missing here, yet pleasingly little else is. [12 May 2012, p.54]

    Babylon introduces a likable pop sheen to the mix that both elevates and homogenizes the end product.

    It is logical, of course, that past work influences some of this record; it's disappointing, though, just how often this resemblance occurs.
