    For all its archness and sophistication, the music here has a very clean, mainstream sound too.

    Occasionally, Callers' sheer prowess on these songs is almost overwhelming; but though Life of Love's relative restraint made it a more accessible on first listen, Reviver unlocks even more possibilities for the band.

    It shows their talents as a band that can perform a vast array of songs and yet still manage to tie them all together.

    Reviver is a plugged-in, dreamrock album that owes more to the beardy Brooklyn scene. [Feb 2013, p.70]

    While Ryan Seaton, the other half of the duo, does pretty well at blending in with the downbeat indie that takes up the majority of this record, whenever Lucas steps up to the mic, she overtakes everything else going on

    Sara Lucas's strident vocals are often incomprehensible, rarely alighting on a tune for long enough to become memorable. [Feb 2013, p.102]
