  1. The Evens' first disc was pointed and protesting, to be sure, but here, on Get Evens, the raw feeling of the record makes the message here more pointed, more specific, and more meaningful.
  2. The record is absolutely at a pace with the band's great debut.

    Theirs is an ire that deserves to be heard. [Dec 2006, p.110]
  4. Get Evens is as quiet and pretty as its predecessor, but the effortless ease is gone, replaced by a sort of busy anxiety.
  5. Get Evens is a grittier, more overtly political follow-up to their charming debut.
  6. While the Evens' debut was a little rough around the edges at times, those imperfections have been buffed away for Get Evens.
  7. 70
    This lo-fi duo... continue to make charming albums while simply shrugging at their own limitations. [Jan 2007, p.88]
  8. Get Evens is the aural embodiment of the sublimated rage of their debut. Though the instrumentation is still spare, it's meatier and more aggressive.

    I expected more from this based on their first release together and their other projects. I found a lot of this to be pretty boring, unfortunately.

    If only more musicians were this poetically outspoken and musically creative. The most quiet, angry album I'll ever hear.
