    Overall, Gold Motel stands out as a non-guilty pop pleasure that will leave hip listeners singing, dancing and apologizing, "Sorry, I'm not sorry."

    The arrangements are busier, but Morgan's the key to holding it together. [Aug 2012, p.90]

    This female-fronted quintet continues to connect the tuneful aggression of Blondie with the SoCal sassiness of Rilo Kiley. [Aug 2012, p.71]

    With Gold Motel the bandmembers are wiser, but never weary, simultaneously expanding their sound around their new world-view and fitting it within the candy-pop shell they've crafted so well.

    At this crossroads between excitement, adventure and melancholy, Gold Motel resides.

    Songs like "Santa Cruz" make this album fallible--they aren't as beautiful as the place and memories evoked from the titles.
