    By far the best debut album I've heard this year. This is very smart music, epic but not overbearing. Why isn't it getting more attention? Buy it! Listen to it! Let's make sure there's a WWII!

  1. It isn't easy to strike the right balance between ambition and emotion, scale and humanity; White Whale manage it with ease on WWI.

    Too big for the shallows, White Whale are at their best when pushing out into the depths of dense melodies and sea-breezy lyrics. [Sep 2006, p.216]

    Fairly golden and never uninteresting. [#73, p.110]
