    House of Love offers an album that will likely satisfy whatever quiet hopes its fans have kept safe for the band.

    There might not be any hits, but it's still a convincing chapter few would have predicted. [May 2013, p.102]

    It captures their two sides--songs are either rousing with crashing guitars, swirling atmospheres and arresting climaxes or empyrean, indie introspective ballads. [May 2013, p.88]

    It's hard not to feel a nostalgic pang for their youth. You glimpse it in the chugging riff of A Baby Got Back on Its Feet and in the needling notes of Low Black Clouds, but only PKR maintains the tension.
  5. The jangle and thrash of Terry Bickers’ guitar and the wistful air of it all could come straight from their self-titled 1988 debut.
