  1. Spills Out is a satisfying album that puts a unique spin on otherwise trite indie-pop touchstones and a marriage of dissonance and charm seamless enough that, at times, it's almost difficult to tell one from the other.

    Pterodactyl's sound most figuratively Spills Out. Drink up and enjoy.

    Thing start out Brooklyn Noise rock, but the second half of the album gets downright Nuggets-worthy. [Oct 2011, p.102]

    At times, Pterodactyl wedges in too many layers, so that the parts blur together in a formless murk.

    At every turn and every track the album is pushing up the RPMs to the point the engine begins to whine, smoke and threaten to explode.

    The dichotomy between the agonies of face-melting and beatific singing has long been a Pterodactyl motif, but this time the guitar wizardry takes a nonetheless threatening backseat to the structure of the songs.

    A few strong moments don't make a full release succeed.
