  1. Paperwork a is worthy listen because it contains all the elements that had us take notice of volcano!
  2. 80
    All are by turns playful, impassioned, and intelligent. [Oct 2008, p.118]
  3. 80
    His breathless falsetto remains a dealbreaker, but such vaulting ambition should appeal to fans of US forebears Deerhoof and domestic square pegs Wild Beasts. [Oct 2008, p.109]
  4. Paperwork is a very demanding album, and one that sometimes seems to delight in leading the listener towards dead-ends.
  5. This is something you're either going to like or really hate.
  6. 70
    The latter half of Paperwork is a showcase for the lead, at times a tad too comfortable with his unrestrained vocalizations.
  7. Paperwork is a definite step forward, and though it’s possible that those who loved volcano! before might find this more "conventional" album less exciting, I’d be surprised if anyone called it less rewarding.
