    Bryce's masterful way with a melody shines through once again. [9 Jun 2012, p.54]
  2. Combining the huge sound of Of Men & Angels with the youthful honesty of Hello, Good Friend and Do You Feel, Avary has created his best record yet with Life Will Write These Words.
  3. 80
    It boasts some of Avary's most concise songwriting to date and a self-confident, unfettered vibe that's invigorating. [Jul 2012, p.89]

    One can't help but feel that Avary's grasp on quality control is waning, with too many of these--admittedly solid and likable--twelve tracks delivering predictable and forgettable results that fail to reach any great heights.

    At the very least, it would do Avary a world of good to have someone to urge him to ease up on the throttle of his vocals.

    "Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired" is the album where Bryce Avary's vocals are most extended to the fore . Although songs retain their pop character, however they are largely based on the indie rock background. You may like CD - tracks quickly caught the ear - but the compositions appearing on the album fit better to be played on the radio, alongside similar - vanishing amid fierce competition positions, rather than as a notable release.
