  1. A rare mix of intimacy and experimentalism, Too Old to Die Young will resonate with indie rock fans who know what that album title really means.

    Tall Firs are becoming a bit anthemic; stand up and salute. [Winter 2008, p.94]
  3. There's something very likable about this album....The problem with Too Old To Die Young is that it's too familiar to sound truly fresh. [May 2008, p.65]
  4. It's definitely worth checking out if you're into noisy, low-key rock and inventive guitar work.
  5. In spite of its blatant Sonic Youth biting--which is actually kind of refreshing--there are a lot of gorgeous and even heart-stopping moments on Too Old To Die Young. It's just a shame so few of its strengths can figure out how to work together.
