    With all the percolating energy the album delivers, its three most memorable songs are ballads.

    It's the achievement of their fourth studio album that this giddy mix hangs together as an endearing whole.
  3. Carry Me Back ticks all the boxes: jaunty, soulful, nostalgic without being cloying.

    These harrowing tackles of murder, bootleggers and war jangle the heart's cage. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.124]

    The songs never stray far from the band's wheelhouse, yet they feel energized and impactful.
