    That's Oddfellow's overriding vibe, as well as its greatest asset: tighter songs and sturdier structures, with more room left for atmosphere, exploration, and subversion within them.

    Led by Patton’s smarmy vocals and the band’s intricately heavy instrumentation, Oddfellows cuts a swath between infectious bangers (Stone Letter, South Paw) and quirky atmospherics.

    It strikes the prefect balance: accessible, yet with enough idiosyncrasy to make it more than just a formulaic retread of past glories.

    While wonderfully idiosyncratic, Oddfellows finds them at their most accessible to date. [Apr 2013, p.95]

    On the surface, it's big, dumb, and fun; just beneath, there's an improbably complicated band at work, showing its hand only on repeated listens.

    Good as these guys are at mashing up genres on the fly, there's no denying the straighter, fist-pumpier stuff here works best.

    It occasionally delivers the eccentric, giant-chorused rock that made Faith No More so great. [Feb 2013, p.107]
