  1. A unique combination of masculinity and creativity, Let's Stay Friends is proof that few bands rock quite like this.
  2. Let's Stay Friends is LSF's comeback--and frontman Tim Harrington and crew have picked up precisely where they left off.
  3. This album was well worth the wait and should win over some new fans and please the old ones too. Best of show.
  4. An ambitious, filler-free, modernist-sounding beast which laughs in the face of underachievement.

    Let's Stay Friends is a triumphant fusion of graft and glimmer. [Nov 2007, p.96]
  6. It marks a huge leap forward, with much of their previous discordant awkwardness replaced with a more focused approach. [Nov 2007, p.141]
  7. At best, the record is filled with remnants of bottled anger and expelled demons. At worst, it’s filled with the kind of angsty cries typically read in pouty 14-year-olds’ LiveJournals.

    I can't believe that an album that actually rocks made to the top ten list. Must have been an oversight.

    Pounding passion. Contagious and catchy. Great lyrics. This is the most addictive album of the year. A must have.

    10 because it's so refreshing, 10 because it does what it intends to and is better than 99% of contemporary rock/punk/pop. They are the 10 because it's so refreshing, 10 because it does what it intends to and is better than 99% of contemporary rock/punk/pop. They are the wind that shakes my barley. The candle in my wind. Les Savy Fav effin rock. Listen to it more than once so you can really chew it before you digest it. It's good gooder and great. Expand

    Wow, this album is short, but infectious. It takes a few listens to love all the way, but after a few listens I couldn't take it from my Wow, this album is short, but infectious. It takes a few listens to love all the way, but after a few listens I couldn't take it from my CD player. Expand

    This is a record I've been waiting for for years, and the mere fact that it didn't disappoint speaks volumes to its quality. This is a record I've been waiting for for years, and the mere fact that it didn't disappoint speaks volumes to its quality. It's an absolute blast; a combo of articulated musicianship and effortless cool. In a year of strong albums, this is near the top of the pack. Expand
