    Last Days Of Summer marks the point where White Denim left behind their schizophrenia and started speaking in one voice.

    Last Day Of Summer is as good as anything White Denim have ever done. [Jan 2011, p.80]

    Last Day Of Summer confirms that White Denim have a broad understanding of music as a whole... Their ability to synthesise this knowledge makes them one of the most thrilling forces in rock music right now. [Jan 2012, p.96]

    What makes Last Day of Summer engaging has as much to do with White Denim's potential future as it does its roots.

    Despite the inessential nature of some songs, and perhaps the inessential nature of the album as a whole, for sympathetic ears it serves as a kind of skeleton key to White Denim's bewildering powers, as much as any collection of demos or rehersal tapes.

    Last Day of Summer is surely weirder than their actual album material, but it's compelling to watch a band rooted in garage rock go so far out of its comfort zone, try some uncharted styles (jazz, prog, tropicalia, and psych-folk), and still come up with some winners.

    [It has] abundant warmth, melodiousness and spontaneity--and fewer full-tilt stylistic shifts than earlier records. [Jan 2012, p.127]
