    Though easy to peg a purely pop album, with only one track that dares to venture beyond the 3:30 mark, Evening Tapestry's controlled psychedelic overtones help the songs go beyond run-of-the-mill pop tunes.

    All the pieces fit together perfectly for Brown Recluse on Evening Tapestry, and it's a pleasure from beginning to end.

    Unlike Beach Fossils' compartmentalized distance, though, Brown Recluse sound bright and direct throughout Evening Tapestry, like light shining through their sleepy fog. Sort of like a dream? No-- better.

    The instrumental quality on Evening Tapestry is beyond solid, but altogether, it's a recognizably decent piece of retro psychedelic pop.

    Taken together, a few solid singles feel like nothing more than another promising EP from the band.

    The result is a pastiche of deja vu moments that distract from a significant level of musicianship that this growing Philadelphia sextet possesses.

    The group can't sustain their earlier EP's magic over the course of a full LP. [May 2011, p.88]
