  1. All told, it's another triumph for a band whose creative peak seems to defy gravity with each passing year.
  2. Even though the manic intensity that characterized work like Reveille is missed a little here, The Runners Four is still a far cry from typical indie rock; in fact, it sounds more like one of Deerhoof's older albums played at half-speed than anything else.
  3. The Runners Four manages to capture the unbridled intensity and utter joy these four carry across in a live setting.
