    The Megaphonic Thrift marks a well-crafted progression for the Norwegian four-piece.

    It's not perfect but there's enough invention here for that not to matter. [Mar 2012, p.106]

    Ultimately there are no tracks that really stand out any more than the crowd, which is what bars this record from higher marks; but then, there are no bad tracks either, and the whole package is very listenable.

    Some of the tracks do seem a bit half-formed admittedly, with the second half of the album sailing a bit too close to filler for comfort.

    The Megaphonic Thrift largely avoid falling into the same self-indulgence trap that blights many all-star side projects, but they aren't quite engaging enough to suggest the hobby should become full-time.

    The Megaphonic Thrift first came to attention with an EP; it's possible that concentrated form might be their best mode of display.
