  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. This isn’t Black Eyes, or Public Image Ltd., or even the Mi Ami you knew, and it sure as hell ain’t Bob Marley. This is just a band at their very best pointing a fresh way forward for anyone lucky enough to listen closely.
  4. Per usual, the music is skewed and exhausting (in the best way imaginable) and the rhythmic interplay between bassist Jacob Long and drummer Damon Palermo is fantastic.
  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. The band continues to mine their particular brand of post-hardcore, danceable, free-punk madness--with satisfying results.
  7. 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.
