  • Summary: The Brooklyn trio's third album, produced by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr.), marks their debut for Sub Pop.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 9 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. One of the brightest and catchy offerings for Sub Pop all year. [Nov 2006, p.188]
  2. This is a record full of loose ends and fractious energy, not at all compromised by its move up the food chain.
  3. Ultimately, the band has arrived with a poppier-sounding album while their signature sour earnestness remains intact.
  4. Unlike the groups' prior albums, Remember the Night Parties carries less heft due to its shimmering pop mindset.
  5. There’s no question that Oxford Collapse, like an awkward teenager, hasn’t figured out exactly what they are, and the added pressures of a larger label release have caught them slightly off guard.
  6. This disc won't change your life but makes for a pleasant 40-minute listen.
  7. There is a palpable sense of indifference throughout the first half of the record. [#15]
