    On Tiger Talk, Yukon Blonde goes beyond paying homage to yesteryear, interpreting the past as less of a sound and more of a feeling, all with an enthusiasm that cannot be ignored.

    This band seems poised for some kind of breakthrough and Tiger Talk seems as a good a place as any for this to happen.

    This album demonstrates that Yukon Blonde can transition and adapt to a change in sound efficiently and damn well.

    'Tiger Talk' allows YB to earn their stripes as purveyors of plush, 70s-inspired powerpop.

    An infusion of their earlier hazy laid-backness would've add more variety, but Tiger Talk is still an enthusiastic, confident follow-up from a band well on its way.

    Neatly countering the initial pedal-to-the-metal energy of "My Girl," "Sweet Dee" is a slow-burning sunset cruise that makes Tiger Talk's destination entirely worth the somewhat familiar journey.

    There is certainly well crafted song writing, but the album suffers for having a rather one dimensional sound; the most interesting track ['Sweet Dee'] is, notably, the most different.
