  • Summary: The third album for the St. Louis-based rock band was produced by Chris Walla.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. While The Loud Wars is overflowing with extremely impressive musicianship, creative time shifts, and interesting instrumentation, it also has an inviting pop sensibility. [Jun 2009, p.99]
  2. The latest album from St Louis, Illinois, quartet So Many Dynamos is definitely a keeper.
  3. If you don’t mind the lack of edge or grunginess--which is to say, if you like your danger safe--bring extra artillery. You could spend serious time deconstructing this album.
  4. There are memorable riffs and lyrics throughout this album, but nearly all of the vocal melodies fall curiously flat. This cuts down a lot on the catchiness of the songs and makes the whole package slightly less memorable.
  5. When I take The Loud Wars as a justifiably forgotten but enjoyable enough record from a bygone era, I'm soothed; it's a little better than, oh, Fake French or something, and I'm sure as hell not going to dig around to find that one with this thing floating around.
