  1. This is an album of genuine depth, one expressing the nervous conservative shockwaves which charge through party kids once they start to come down.

    It's fitting that this debut contains at least half a dozen exquiste songs that could work in any idiom. [Feb 2008, p.80]
  3. Falling... is a remarkable leap forward; as Lightspeed Champion, Hynes is, at last, a serious contender.
  4. On Falling Off the Lavender Bridge, Hynes offers a comfortable (and more interesting) marriage of lush Brit-pop and Omaha-flavored country-rock.
  5. Whatever the case may be, what's left is a record with some promise but too many flaws to be truly enjoyable.
  6. This is an adolescent album, promising and irritating in equal measure.
  7. Hynes' shift into elaborate, string-laden indie-folk is itself a profound gesture, but repetitive melodies and inscrutable melodrama undermine the mission.
