    such a letdown from their debut. retained none of the warmth or good feeling instead we get overproduced half assed experimentation over non-memorable melodies. ugh

    One of the year's best. [29 Oct 2005]
  2. Descended Like Vultures snuggles down between Wolf Parade’s Apologies To The Queen Mary and Modest Mouse’s 2004 release, Good News For People Who Like Bad News as a competent, half-slapped together, half-methodic slice of evolved indie-rock.
  3. In the end, it's hard to decide if Descended Like Vultures is better or worse than Rogue Wave's debut.
