    Group Sounds is as good as anything they've put their name to previously. [#180, p.110]
  2. Group Sounds may not be astonishingly great, but it mostly rocks with the raw, excellent sound RFTC has come to own.

    After 10 years, RFTC have perfected their mix of muscular guitar riffs and bristling horns; it's the songwriting that's hit a dead end. [3/9/2001, p.82]
  4. Yes, it has a certain something that makes you bob your head and/or shake your ass to songs that you'd probably be ticked off by if someone drove past your pad blasting them out his windows. But no, it's not the stuff that great CDs are made of.

Its quality stuff, with 3/4 of the album pure rftc style punk and 2 songs "SOS" and "Ghost shark" which are peaceful, sad and really shows the other side of RFTC. Full Review »
