    Every Step's a Yes is more than just a worthy chapter in the Bees' astonishing collected works. It's also a single achievement I'd put up against just about anything else released by anyone this year.

    If you want a record that sounds a little out of step with everything else around it, which brightens its corners with all sorts of musical curios, then it's a yes for Every Step's A Yes.

    Every Step's a Yes is a worthy partner to [Best Coast, Beach House and Wild Nothing's] records.

    It's ultimately more memorable for the way it combines its sounds than for its songwriting, which is a criticism that applies to a fair amount of the record.

    Songs that make up the rest of the album showcase interesting hooks and tasteful instrumentation, but it's definitely the case of the whole being less than the sum of its parts.

    This album, despite its merits, doesn't do much but position the band as a bunch of revivalists in serious need of reviving.

    Every Step's A Yes is a stylistic mish-mash with a few notable gems worthy of downloading.
