    Production-wise, the vocals could do with sounding more 'live' (they are note perfect)--but the musicianship present is enough to justify the polish.
  2. As long as they keep making records as good as Drifter, they can stop wandering around, and stay as long as they like.

    When it comes to ferocious riffs and monstrous melodies, few in the punk world can touch Heartsounds right now. [Aug 2011, p.114]

    Despite what some might think, punk and metal are not enemies; hopefully after Drifter, Heartsounds will learn you don't have to starve one to feed the other.

    Putting the lack of uniqueness aside, though, Drifter is a good album for Heartsounds, and it makes sense as the next step in their development as a band.
