    There's little about Dead Set on Living that isn't an improvement on the band's past efforts, from the thunderous guitar tones to the frenetic energy pouring out of every song, courtesy of live-off-the-floor recording.

    Dead Set On Living is raw, visceral and an antidote to the glossy sounds and polished looks that abound right now. [114 2012, p.52]
