    The performances are ahead of the songwriting at this early stage, but the loping "Trojans," the rip-roaring "Electric" and the Police-like "Centered On You" engagingly introduce Atlas Genius' genetically taut sound. [Mar 2013, p.67]

    When It Was Now is a solid debut that proves Trojans wasn't a fluke.

    It ain't exactly Bill Shakespeare (or Trojans), but it gets the job done.

Yes, one or two songs may not be as good as the others, but the album is still pretty damn fine. I am looking forward to other and upcoming music by Atlas Genius. Full Review »
