  1. So while Jagjaguwar may well release a below par record in 2008, Shots is not that record.
  2. 80
    Brevity obviously suits them as the results are both evocative and sublime. [May 2008, p.111]
  3. While Driedeger and company still have a ways to go in crafting a distinct sound and generally tightening their writing (especially the lyrics), they're well on their way.
  4. 62
    While Shots never delivers on its promotional material's promise of ushering in an uninhibited Bacchanalis, it doesn't crash either. [Winter 2008, p.96]
  5. After the surprising opening salvo, however, Shots clumsily bogs down in its desire to be big and rocking, even though any time Ladyhawk can be bothered to push the tempo.
  6. It is not all this good on Shots, but when it is, Ladyhawk show they can stand with most any rock band going today.
  7. 60
    To say Ladyhawk offer a pretty straightforward rock trip make them sound unadventurous, which they probably are, but also doesn't really do justice to the sheer head-nodding, play-loud-and-prosper enjoymenet this offers. [May 2008, p.102]
