    This is music that operates at full force at all times.

    It doesn’t feel corny or hyperbolic to call this record life-affirming, so perfectly does it capture the flashes of gratitude, self-knowledge, and inexplicable joy that often follow an experience of great pain.

    At a succinct length, the album does exactly what it needs to do without a second to spare.

    Say Yes To Love feels like a purging, 20-odd minutes of urgent expulsion that leaves you feeling exhausted, elated and renewed.

    Their thorny noise pit might occlude itself to many listeners--it’s not pretty, and it’s not for everyone. Those who recognize themselves in the havoc, though, will find themselves nesting there for a long while to come.

    Say Yes to Love is a potently wrought 22 minutes of febrile noise-punk that contains enough in the way of hook and subtle invention amidst its familiar battery to stand up on its own feet.

    Say Yes to Love gets bogged down in some questionably drawn-out experimentation toward the end, but that can't undo the face-peeling impact of its first 15 minutes.

    Glorious radical madness pervades this entire album. If you like noise with some "truth" get this! This punk siren is not always discernable - it's like noise language. Think Sleater-Kinney on speed. (Or not.) Expand

    The music has a lot of energy, which is always expected (and appreciated) in a punk rock album. Tons of noise and nearly-unhearable lyrics is also expected, but it went a little too far here. I don't know what the lyrics are talking about at all. I couldn't make out the words. I even went online searching for them, but didn't find any.

    This is a pretty mixed album.

    It's "aight". Decent noise and punk rock here. This LP does showcase some influences from good bands like Melt Banana, Times New Viking and Smell. These influences also find their way into the production and recording processes as well. Sounds great on paper, but very little variety here, especially with the vocals and guitar riffs. The low-fi nature also really holds it back and suffocates the tracks at their loud points. Expand
