  1. This is the sort of record you’re gonna put on when the sun’s shining and you just need some good old pop-rock.
  2. Phoenix still hasn’t overcome the faults of their previous efforts. [#14]
  3. If It's Never Been Like That sees them rocking out by their own standards, they're still a sweat-free prospect by most others. [Jun 2006, p.118]
