  1. Although Mice Parade isn't necessarily the group's paramount album, it certainly makes their stock soar high.
  2. Mice Parade is a record steeped in sophistication and modern anxiety, rendered in multiple shades of beat-crazy.
  3. Whilst this self-titled Mice Parade set may struggle to push Adam Pierce’s envelope much beyond a well-sealed blue-print, it does at least keep the momentum of his low-key career moving along at a respectable and occasionally unpredictable rate.
  4. Mice Parade have never before been quite this accessible.
  5. Mice Parade still finds Pierce working in a distinctive space, less jazzy than fellow post-rock vets the Sea & Cake but more atmospherically nuanced than typical acoustic singer/songwriters, but it's hardly the most appropriate release to bear the Mice Parade name.
  6. While it is a very good sounding record, this album doesn’t quite hold together from song to song.
  7. [It] continues with the middle-of-the-road, ambient pop approach that marked his last few efforts.
