    This album has the spirit of the classic rock music of the 60s. However, while that should be a great thing, it's not in this case. It doesn't feel as exciting as the music that influenced it.

    It feels a bit stripped down and leaner, but I think that even running a with a different line-up, John Dwyer's talent and creative edge is focused and the group accomplishes exactly what they want. The only thing I could say negative about it is the songs feel less frantic than previous releases.

    It’s unabashedly seventies, from the Black Sabbath-meets-Yeezus rhythm of “Penetrating Eye” through the end, but Drop is something fans of guitars and reverb need desperately in 2014, just as with every Thee Oh Sees release before it.

    Every moment is crucial and energetic, a sheer heart attack of rock magic that should, by all rights, be blaring at every too-warm, too-full house party of the coming summer. [Jun/Jul 2014, p.93]

    The group maintains the signature controlled-chaos staples of its sound--big, dirty riffs underpinned by John Dwyer's trademark ghoulish vocal melodies--while broadening its already hyper-musical palate. [No. 109, p.55]
