    What's great about English Little League very much preaches to the choir. But it's nevertheless clear this crew is ready to welcome some new converts once more. [No. 98, p.51]

    English Little League is a red wheelbarrow full of awesome.

    GBV's only LP of 2013 and it's a good'un. [Jun 2013, p.95]

    Triumphant as the return itself has been, the records themselves have really only skirted triumph. English Little League is no different.

    English Little League just misses greatness, but if it’s not the best album they’ve put out since early 2012, it’s certainly the most interesting, the most willing to take risks.

    English Little League, like most of Pollard’s crop from the past decade, holds a few really great tracks, but is mostly missable.

    English Little League starts with a memorable and high-quality opener in “Xeno Pariah,” a compact showcase of everything the band does right.... They don’t maintain that high quality--the off-key “Sir Garlic Breath” is just painful--and more often than not, the songs fall into good-not-great territory.
