    Papercuts' fourth album and Sub Pop debut, Fading Parade, is nothing like this overwrought, overwhelming assault on the senses.

    Sure, at times, they sound like Gene, but on tracks like "Do You Really Wanna Know" they are nigh-on perfect: Jangly and breathless, with traces of The Smiths but a softer edge. [Apr 2011, p.89]

    Its mood affecting. its melodies haunting, Fading Parade is spellbinding. [Apr 2011, p.101]

    Considering the way Fading Parade wraps up, you just get the feeling that Papercuts could go a little deeper when Quever gives his songs a little more room to breathe.

    The result is a more direct sound. [Apr 2011, p.106]

    On Fading Parade, Papercuts (a.k.a. Jason Robert Quever) hasn't changed too much, sticking with the fuzzed, hazy, '60s dream-pop that's the musical equivalent of a shoebox filled with old Polaroids.
