    It's always been rare to find a band that has a lyricist with as much as depth as Green and and band so dedicated to making those words come to light. I'm not sure which come first, lyrics or music but it's absolutely fantastic to hear it all come to together in what is a fantastic album. Not one track on this album is a dud or is so experimental that the listener will have the urge toIt's always been rare to find a band that has a lyricist with as much as depth as Green and and band so dedicated to making those words come to light.

Not one track on this album is a dud or is so experimental that the listener will have the urge to push forward.

  1. There's certainly enough passion in Blue Sky Noise to show the masses where rock and roll and great songwriting can meet in a traditional compromise that everyone can enjoy.
  2. Blue Sky Noise, with all of its spit-shine and modern rock luster, may not move mountains outside of its own pained and heavily marketed demographic, but as long as superhero movie franchises remain profitable, bands like Circa Survive will be there to play over the credits.
  3. It harnesses Circa's best qualities and adds a sense of direction previous releases somewhat lacked. [May 2010, p.105]
