  1. Thank You Very Quickly is that rare thing in popular music as well as indie: that a band sticks it out long enough to find, among the various elements of its individuals, a real musical synthesis that creates a sound that is so much bigger than the sum of its parts.
  2. In the newfound center on Thank You Very Quickly, Eagleson and company have stealthly transitioned from indie ethno-experimental vanguards to genuine Afro-Rock champions, erasing 7,000 miles of distance and so many years of history.

    This third disc, to be blunt, pisses over the competition. [Apr 2009, p.106]
  4. This is more than a charming throwback. It’s a power statement made all the more remarkable when one considers the political and geographic obstacles the band continues to overcome.
  5. These are heavy times, no question, and yet in the face of all our strife and conflict, Extra Golden make it look sso damned simple. [Spring 2009, p.71]
  6. 70
    This hybrid group -- two American indie vets and two Kenyan benga musicians--twist rock and African riffs into drum-head-tight grooves on their third album, a feast for multiethnic guitar nerds but also a lively mix that anyone can dance to.
  7. There are no new Obama tributes in this energetic and freewheeling set, mostly recorded in the laundry room of Eagleson's parents' house, but the six lengthy songs here show the band's potential.
