    Lyrics are somewhat interesting, but from a musical standpoint the album is contrived and boring, rather generic. Only one track on the album stands out but even it has a ugly and disgusting feel to it .

    On the evidence of their third full-length, this Scranton four-piece posses not one, but two examples [of good lyricists]. [19 Feb 2012, p.50]

    It might only be February, but you wouldn't look foolish calling this one of the albums of the year.

    On the Impossible Past is an impeccably crafted melodic hardcore record by a group ready for it's close-up.
