    Forever so takes in spectral balladry, rousing stompathons and incursions into jazz and olde English madrigals, to consistently bewitching effect. [Jun 2012, p.74]

    The foursome's dedication to songcraft and atmospherics resound through the record, qualities that should mark them as a group worthy of being the wheat among the chaff.

    Although Forever So has some exceptional moments, they merely serve as a bitter reminder of Husky's potential to create something more than just a collection of pleasant sounds.

    Compelling... [Yet] Forever So's resolutely overcast vibe grows a touch dreary around the three-quarter mark; Husky's tempos tend toward the deliberate, and they're most comfortable hanging out in a minor key, but after nine or 10 fairly maudlin affairs in a row, you may find yourself longing for a little respite.

    Their experimental ambition and artistic integrity is extremely promising, and with a little more focus, direction, and experience, they could be something special very soon.

    Husky's best songs are carefully paced and uncomplicated; when they attempt to aim for cod-psychedelia they produce some turgid tunes.

    It's this flitting between moments of brilliance and sections of dainty sounding but ultimately rather tedious meandering that defines the album.
  8. Jul 25, 2012
    While the album has its share of pretty melodies and even some gently beautiful moments, it's mostly a string of unremarkable songs built on platitudes, searching for reason and resolution but ultimately coming up empty-handed.

    Husky's Forever So represents the latest in a sea of bands that, despite being able to perform and harmonize, should just go the route of talented session players and backing bands; artists with plenty to play, but not much to say.
