    Stagnant Pools' combination of overdrive and understated make this a surprisingly alluring album. [Sep 2012, p.94]

    Stagnant Pools make a drone-y noise out of only guitars and drums. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.122]

    Remember the old Chris Rock bit where he ate broccoli and cheese for the first time as a kid and thought he'd want nothing but that for the rest of his life? Replace "broccoli" with "Jesus" and "cheese" with "Mary Chain" and you're getting close to the charmingly monomaniacal focus Stagnant Pools bring to their debut, Temporary Room.

    At present, their light out-of-the-box exploits feel more like comfort food, but there's no denying that once they develop their experimental ways they'll move out of stagnancy.

    A revitalized take on noise-rock that honors the originating genre while eschewing its occasionally stifling boundaries.

    There is a purity to their sound and vision that gives the album its power.
