  1. Q Magazine
    80
    If you like Sufjan Steven's lushly orchestrated reveries, you'll love this canadian eight-piece, who come across on their ambitious second album like an indie-folk Arcade Fire. [Mar 2009, p.105]
  2. Mojo
    80
    Hamilton's second album only firms up a reputation for making pastoral, semi-acoustic pop. [Mar 2009, p.107]
  3. Under The Radar
    70
    Thier sound, comparable perhaps to Arcade Fire, Camera Obscura or Grizzly Bear, features harmonies that take flight as beautifully as those of Fleet Foxes. [Spring 2009, p.77]
  4. This looks to be the album that has really brought the nomads that make up Hamilton's band together, and it's another Canadian triumph to add to an ever-increasing list.
  5. Some may shy at his slushier lyrics about girls in clocktowers and lovers wanting to fly into each other's arms, but there is enough strength behind these sentiments, and enough muscle in the band's heady harmonies, to make this an inspiring meditation on exile and return.
