    Although it feels they've truly thrown the kitchen sink and their full repertoire of synth syncopation at it this time, it's truly a thrilling and spine chilling ride, one that leaves your bones shaken to the core.

    Volume X [is] their best album since 200's The Red Line. [May 2014, p.70]

    Volume X certainly appears to have more than enough subtle moments and hidden delights to ensure its longevity.

    Volume X is a balanced record, potentially a future classic for those who are into that sort of thing.

    Volume X isn't quite as consistent as Trans Am's finest work, but it's still a lot of fun and will have fans anticipating what's to come between this album and Volume XX.

    Volume X is not a dud album, just a little short on X Factor. [Aug 2014, p. 206]

    Talent and skill overflow from the fingertips of the members of Trans Am, but that doesn’t mean they should let it make a mess on the carpet.
