  1. Leave Your Name is 11 tracks and only 28 minutes long, about half of which feels like noodling.
  2. Statistics come on like a more abstract, art-damaged version of the Cure.
  3. Statistics... come off like an emo version of Coldplay.
  4. This album has been done before and lacks the originality or quality of songwriting to merit repeated listens or set it apart from the scores of others playing this type of music.
  5. Dalley possesses neither heart nor soul as a lead vocalist, and his milk-warm emotional outpouring of tiresome, overwrought subject matter could get lost in a crowd of two.
  6. Alternative Press

    [Dalley] repeatedly dilutes Leave Your Name with empty atmospheric exercises in barely-there vocals and shimmery keys. [Feb 2004, p.80]
