    "Killing Time" is slightly more than a half-hour album of Terry Malts. Fourteen compositions are the proverbial "three chord made", because all of them, made in quite a specific lo-fi, are punk songs with indie rock style of singing. All are similar, ain't a surprise and sound like we're listening to a radio broadcast from the rebellious '70s California.

    It's catchy sometimes, but the fuzzy punk-pop stretches itself pretty thin over a full-length. [Mar 2012, p.87]

    The 14 songs clock in at only 34 minutes, so Killing Time never overstays its welcome, giving you that caffeine-type pick-me-up so few indie pop albums offer these days.

    Killing Time isn't a very compelling pop record, although I suppose there are much worse ways to, well, kill time.
