    Some truly beautiful moments. Some truly overwraught stretches. No question they wear their influences on their sleeve, but when your influences are this cool it's hard not to like. Seeing them live really enhanced the effect of the album on me, check them out if you can.

    My favorite thing about San Francisco is the Stratford 4. This relatively diverse selection of songs (noisy, sweet, poppy, sound tracky) keeps me falling in love.

    The S4 seems very confident in getting away from itself and making music not burdened by influence, but propelled by it. [#58, p.106]

    There's a chunk of empathy lodged between the many splurges of drool-dripping, volume-blasting guitar wankery. [#5, p.88]
  3. Summons enough winning moments to make comparisons a secondary concern.
