  1. hey've never been as good or as distinct as they are on Steal Your Face.
  2. Now Mi Ami are making sense. Now you realise that this band is actually really good. Really, really good. And they make you want to dance.
  3. 80
    Mi Ami continues to explore its loose-groove, jam-band tendencies on the epic "Dreamers" and album closer "Slow," but in far more reserved quantities than Watersports, making for a much more exciting and immediately lovable listen.
  4. In the fury of these cool-crushing rushes Mi Ami are exhilarating, roaring forwards, chasing risk like Can tied to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged across the surface of the sun.
  5. Despite all its goodness and lunacy, Steal Your Face is not a record that is likely to find itself touching the needle very often. It doesn’t beg for repeat listens, simply because most normal human beings aren’t able to handle the speed and sonically-pulverizing vibe.
  6. Steal Your Face, while still maintaining its fair share of robust moments, can often feel a bit second-tier. Perhaps it’s because Watersports felt more spontaneous.
  7. The band continues to mine their particular brand of post-hardcore, danceable, free-punk madness--with satisfying results.
