    They don't sustain the quality of songwriting throughout, but this is a promising start.

    Gauntlet Hair are surely a band to keep an eye on, and their first full-length is an exciting listen, but now that they've got that rhythm section thumping for us, let's get some clear choruses to shout along to.

    If Gauntlet Hair are promising rather than solid, they're promising nonetheless, one band of many with a shot at a further brass ring after 2011.

    It actually feels quite sterile in a lot of places; a bit too afraid to show its cards, a bit too afraid to get its hands dirty.
  5. They need to find their identity, and they're going to have to move forward and progress even further as a group if they want to move beyond being a flavor of the month.

    The mix is unrepentantly lo-fi. You may lose your inhibitions or just get a gnarly migraine. [Oct 2011, p.99]

    There is literally nothing on Gauntlet Hair that hasn't been done better by more respectable second-order bands like Tonstartssbandht or Ganglians.

    There's much promise for an act like Gauntlet Hair to floor its contemporaries with time, but as it stands, their grimy, sewage system is in dire need of maintenance.
