    Blame Confusion is great.... It spends its whole ten tracks threatening to break out in to full-blown epic--but remains able to stop short every time.

    It's too easy to call Blame Confusion a solid first album; nevertheless, it's still a consistently entertaining and impressive debut.

    Although they bring precious little new to the table, they have mastered the art of hiding beautiful melody under layers of glorious distortion.

    Back to front, Blame Confusion consists of balls-to-the-wall bangers. When the pace slows down, it isn’t by much.

    The record is, ahem, a solid debut that should provide a jumping off point for something great next time ou

    The hard-driving Blame Confusion, in too big a hurry to stop and take in the scenery, simply lets too much whoosh by in the periphery.

    Many of these songs would benefit from a bit of contrast in terms of dynamics and tempos. And oh yeah, it would be great to understand a few lines of lyrics here and there.
