    Long Black Cars retains a common sense of cohesive purpose throughout.

    If this album is your first experience of Wymeswold's favourite songs, it's unlikely you will forget them. If you're a veteran, this is a good reminder of their brilliance.

    When it works, Long Black Cars condenses the finest elements of The Wave Pictures into some impressive moments.

    This album doesn't reinvent the sound, nor does it subvert it--but on its own modest terms, it provides a concentrated dose of smart, verbose pop.

    The likes of "Stay Here And Look After The Chickens" and "Never Go Home Again" sound as if they've been shaken out of the band in rickety fashion of early Violent Femmes, Tattersall the penurious narrator whose rambling delivery contains flashes of brilliance. [Jun 2012, p.84]

    It conjures a listening experience that screams 1996 indie rock. [Jun 2012, p.158]
