  • Summary: This is the third album for project that began as a spin-off from At The Drive-In but has since lost founding guitarist Paul Hinojos (who is replaced for this album with Denali's Keeley Davis).

  1. Their most accomplished and least anxious record yet. [Nov 2006, p.182]
  2. Sparta... sounds like a beast that's broken its chains and is fighting between the road ahead and going back from whence it came.

    As emo-tastic as Threes is, it merely sizzles in ways their debut singed. [Oct 2006, p.128]
  4. 70
    Call it diversity; call it inconsistency; whatever. Moving in some direction is half the battle. [#22, p.93]
  5. The group is a conglomeration of influences that, while pleasant enough, doesn't rise above being anything more than a mixing board of cool-sounding favorites.
  6. 60
    Sparta have evolved, with a melodic approach and a postdepression, fist-pumping attitude. [Nov 2006, p.104]
  7. A nearly unlistenable, shiny mess of weepy college rock.
