  • Summary: This is the debut album on Secretly Canadian for indie rock quartet from Los Angeles.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. It’s dark and joyous at the same time, fun and epic sounding enough to seem meaningful, despite my inability to make out most of the lyrics.
  2. The lyrics here are sparse and, as with most of the album, indiscernible. It’s rare that a rock album could be so enjoyable without a great presence of the English language, but Person to Person certainly is.
  3. You can tell that these songs were shaped and sculpted and polished ten times over, the attention to detail and space a welcome step away from the often sloppy clumps of no-fi ruckus clattering up from garages and out of bedrooms everywhere right about now.
  4. A charming indie-pop ode to the rootlessness of the permanently hot-tubbed.

    This isn't a necessarily better brand of Foreign Born shoegaze, but it is far shiner and more decidely American made. [Summer 2009, p.96]
  6. If there is a criticism, it's that they lack thier own, unique sound, but this is still a breezily pleasing summer-evoking effort. [Jul 2009, p.122]
  7. Person to Person is a pleasant enough listen rather than a gripping one, somewhere between enjoyable inspiration and careful exercise, a flavoring in the general indie rock milieu of the early 21st century that, for the moment, can have no greater impact.
