    Death of a Decade feels like a trilogy-ender for Ha Ha Tonka's discography-to-date, and a triumphant one, to be sure.

    On Death of a Decade, Ha Ha Tonka takes the harmonies and anthemic melodies one step further.

    It's had to imagine how long Ha Ha Tonka can continue to grow on each album, considering how good they've become, but if you're looking for music that's smart, ambitious, literate, and fun at the same time, Death of a Decade could well be your introduction to your new favorite band.

    There's ambition and wit here, and fans of alt.country Texas veterans like The Gourds and Old 97s will find much to admire. [May 2011, p.87]

    It's a fine album that often lapses into anonymity, that never quite rocks as hard and as consistently as it should.

    Unfortunately, this formula grows tired by the end of the album and paired alongside questionable tempo decisions, Death of a Decade ultimately loses too much steam for redemption.
