  1. Morning Tide is a collection of songs that take the word ‘pop’ in ‘pop music’ literally, bursting with effervescence and joy.
  2. The band's debut full-length, Morning Tide--released on Chop Shop Records--allows that sound to sprawl and unfurl.
  3. 70
    They're intensely twee indie rockers, prone to brisk, even jittery, grooves, and with his pinched voice, Reyes sounds as though he's grasping at something just out of his reach. [Nov 2008, p.75]
  4. The Little Ones are, for the most part, pretty melodious producing indie pop fun with touches of Afro-beat, maybe, possibly!
  5. The Little Ones share their pop predecessors' taste for blossoming melodies and saccharine sentiments. By the end of the album, your face will hurt and you'll be desperate for some Napalm Death.
  6. The Little Ones however have produced a record that naively ignores all the elements that make reality real, and therefore it doesn’t make much sense. It’s happy and lively to the point of vulgarity.
  7. Mostly, it's just not interesting enough to hold the listener's attention throughout. [Aug 2008, p.139]
