  1. The best songs on the new Motion City Soundtrack album arrive like mousetraps, baited and primed and ready to snap.

    Motion City have deftly filled that space between emotional adolescence and responsible adulthood with this set of near-perfect pop. [Oct 2007, p.112]
  3. There's no lull here, just fast-paced fun.
  4. Alternative Press

    Much of the disc is business as usual. [Oct 2007, p.169]

    Underneath his architecturally impressive hair, front guy Justin Pierre is a savvy melodic songwriter and, refreshingly, he’s completely incapable of taking himself seriously.
  6. Though Even If It Kills Me remains far from breaking ground any time soon, MCS’s third full-length release definitely stays true to the format Mr. Pierre and his band mates have seemingly perfected over the years.
