    This third album is as good a guitar-pop set as you'll hear all year.

    These quintessential Rifles offerings may appease those deterred by the album's unexpected wistful nature, but Freedom Run's inherent charm has the potential to elevate the band into the big league, regardless of how many longterm fans stay on board or jump ship.

    The Rifles' standard formula is cliche-ridden but effective. [Dec 2011, p.95]

    Despite a lack of variety, the Rifles' third album offers enough sugary-sweet and catchy guitar-pop to satisfy a certain craving.
  6. 40
    In the case of The Rifles' latest album, Freedom Run, problems stem from a lack of variety throughout its 13 tracks.
