  1. 90
    Winner of the “Best New Act” award at the Danish Grammys, Choir of Young Believers’ debut is like summer itself--over too soon, but a tremendous joy.
  2. This Is for the White in Your Eyes is a come-out-of-the-gate winner.
  3. Makrigiannis’ style makes a strong first impression, as his songs flow naturally from muted sorrow to booming emotion and back. He evokes the calm, the storm, and the aftermath.
  4. 70
    When he injects melodic sunshine, as on the loping 'Action/Reaction,' For the White in Your Eyes nestles nicely between the Beach Boys and Fleet Foxes. But Makrigiannis mostly stays in stark, downcast mode.
  5. Watch out he'll make yoyr believe. [Summer 2009, p.60]
  6. Overall, though, it's too smooth and metropolitan to inspire the same ­reaction that Bon Iver's For Emma, ­Forever Ago did last summer.
  7. Sadly, This is for the White in Your Eyes sees a band with great potential whose ambitions too frequently get the best of them.
