  1. Spin
    60
    Singer Michael Vidal owns his gloominess and the band delivers arrangements that are plenty tricky, but their arty '80s excavation rarely finds the gooey, glittering choruses that would truly elevate their stylistic shift.
  2. Under The Radar
    60
    Crush is a definite left turn from those well-publicized left coast roots, and at times it's so dense it's almost too much, but it reeks of ambition and a very conscious choice to evolve. [Fall 2010, p. 66]
  3. Mojo
    60
    Crush is a thrilling, giddy conflagration of hot and cold currents. [Oct. 2010, p. 97]
  4. Uncut
    60
    As his vocals wobble theatrically over synths, seasick sequencers and squelchy early-'80s sonics, Crush's component parts conspire to pack a considerable emotional punch. [Oct 2010, p.85]
