    This album normally would be something I hate. Yet I love it. I didn't understand it. So I played it over and over until I just loved it. These sorts of albums don't happen often people, so pick this one up.

    Very solid debut. nearly as good as Spoon's new record, and I only make the comparison because they have a similar sound.

    Holy hell. Now THIS is how you make your entrance in the indie rock scene. This is such a great sounding well rounded debut rock album. I can't wait to see what else these guys have in store.

    Really really really great album. Even more impressive that it's a debut. These guys have a well formed sound and I look forward to seeing where they go in the future.

    A unique and inventive album! I found myself waking up the next morning, singing refrains in my head. The music is meaty yet playful. I would highly recommend!

  1. As lyrically eclectic and clever as it is musically, this is one fascinating album.
  2. It's a great debut for a band with an impressive, distinctive sound.
  3. The White Rabbits’ Fort Nightly hijacks the ear and never lets go as it saunters, bursts and recoils with a fusion of ska, tango tweaked guitar riffs and shouts edging toward desperation.
