  1. A mandatory release for all Les Savy Fans, both serious and casual.
  2. Without a doubt, this is Les Savy Fav's defining album.
  3. Defeatist it may be, but such genius is very rarely recognised in a band’s lifetime. So be it – because there genuinely is no verbal persuasion that could exceed a single listen to America’s most underrated.
  4. For any group to progress and change the way that, say, Radiohead has, is pretty damn inspiring. It shows commitment, and it shows vision.
  5. Inches succeeds, and then some, because the record simply doesn’t sound like it’s been collated together over a nine year period.
  6. Inches is an ambitious concept, but the band's success with it is another example of Les Savy Fav's mix of intellect and volatility.
  7. An accurate representation of the prolific group's career. [Aug 2004, p.106]
