    The Style Council-style blue-eyed soul and precise power pop of the debut now have some company that doesn't work, like the '70s Nashville countrypolitan exercise of the title track. [No. 100, p.51]

    It’s always good to know there’s someone out there still doing straight-up guitar pop without irony or pretense.

    There’s still enough dusty amplifier buzz and garagey thump to keep indie aesthetes happy, but intentionally or not, Spectrals now sit in a sonic nook which most resembles the stolid pre-punk orthodoxy of pub rock.

    Sob Story is a good time, but the party clears out as soon as the record stops spinning. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.91]
