    It's an utterly loveable album which truly says more in those 13 minutes than some bands manage in entire careers. [19 May 2012, p.54]

    This is how an album should be made, stripping the songs down just enough so that when you start to listen you never lose your focus. And "OfThis is how an album should be made, stripping the songs down just enough so that when you start to listen you never lose your focus. And "Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired" does just that, it keeps your focus with catchy and fast songs like "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "Bride of Usher". But it also knows when to slow down a bit, take a rest and turn down the amps with "Drainage" and "I'm Always Tired". What so great about the album is that it accomplishes so much in just thirteen minutes, thirteen perfect minutes. You never feel like skipping a song, everyone of them is essential, and it's just a perfect album with no fillers. Full Review »

    While it is a tad short, there are no flaws. Unconventional in places, yes, but that's the charm.

    Make no mistake, I own close to 300 albums of varying genres and have to had listened to at least 1000 in my lifetime... this is one of the very, very few I can pop in at any time of the day, any day of the week, any week of the year, and not get sick of it after playing through it once.

    The youthful shine is undoubtedly what holds it together.

They've remained true toIts an album which boasts so much youthful energy and the hooks are the most catchiest I've heard in a long time. They've remained true to their punk rock roots and the result is an extremely enjoyable rock album! Though below 3 mins, each track is solid and affects your head and stays there for a long time to come, looping and looping, and that's a wonderful feeling. One thing is certain, this is certainly not among my list Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired. Full Review »
