  • Summary: Victor Van Vugt produced this long-awaited full-length debut for the Austin, Texas group, who previously generated some buzz with a series of EPs.

  1. [An] enjoyable, if slightly inconsistent, album.
  2. If Voxtrot seems less magical the first time through, it grows in stature with each listen, as an album should.
  3. Voxtrot’s self-titled debut album is marvelous: a collection of 11 tightly coiled songs, loud and fast and sweet.
  4. There's an undeniable, infectious energy at work here which is put to great use with the self-deprecating humor and immense pop chops.
  5. Voxtrot remains a compelling enough statement to justify the inordinate amounts of excitement thrown around the band, yet nowhere near a fulfillment of the enormous potential they’ve shown.
  6. While those EPs were the energetic documents of a hungry band at a creative peak, [this album] too often seems to fall flat. [#17, p.88]
  7. It’s not like everybody’s playing a different song. Everybody’s playing the same song. It’s just that, for great boring swathes, that song sounds stubborn. It sounds like it doesn’t want to be played.
