  1. In the end, Car Alarm is likeable enough if you’re already a fan. Just don’t expect to die of excitement.

    Car Alarm offers a fine entry point into the quartet's breezy soundworld. [Nov 2008, p.110]
  3. 60
    The Sea And The Cake's refusal to budge from their original MO for the last 14 years seems like an admirable show of restraint. [Nov 2008, p.119]
  4. Car Alarm strips away the exotic and the curious. [Nov 2008, p.70]
  5. 60
    Even though Prekop and Prewitt continue interlocking their guitars over spiny rhythms from McEntire and Calridge throughout the set, something doesn't quite click often enough this time around. [Nov/Dec 2008, p.87]
  6. Maybe all of Car Alarm is about conflict, but Prekop glides and sighs over every vowel, making it difficult to hear what he’s saying or to detect a hint of tension beneath the gloss.
