    Simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.

    Pressure & Time is short enough to fit on two sides of vinyl and, quaintly, leaves you wanting much more. [Aug 2011, p.89]

    It's really no gamble to suggest that over 31 magical minutes, Rival Sons have delivered the finest classic rock debut of the year. [25 Jun 2011, p.52]

    Pressure and Time is revivalist rock inflected with just the right hue of the now.

    Rival Sons are a power trio plus singer in the traditional style, who might have made this album after listening to the first Led Zeppelin LP over and over for a day or two... Anyone who likes [60's hard rock] should ... check them out.

    Pressure & Time can bog down in its own retro pretensions, but singer Jay Buchanan is an undeniable vocal force.

    Pressure And Time is a powerful, soulful affair full of strut and swagger. [Aug. 2011, p. 119]
