    At first glance I thought this was an album by 90s rockers The Odds.. nope, it's an album called The Odds by The Evens.

    The music and especially the singing of Amy reminds me of PJ Harvey, a comparison I'm sure these two are fine with. I'm quite enjoying this album.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how much this album peaked my interest. Never have I heard of this band until it was reviewed on this site. Gave it a listen and thank God I did, it's fantastic. Ian MacKaye on baritone guitar steals this whole record. his lyrics blow me away. I wasn't aware of Amy Farina until this album but I must say that she holds her own as well on drums and vocals. All In All, this is one of the best duo bands I've heard this year and probably one of the best I've heard ever. A- Collapse

    On The Odds, there is a sense in which The Evens are tensing the muscles of their quiet/loud rock within its short range.

    Loses steam partway, but it's a better-than-solid outing. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.93]

    The Odds show that Fugazi doesn't need to reunite in order to make music that still very much matters.
