  1. Every song could be three, but that they're not and that each individual movement advances the album's romantic arc proves all too swoonworthy.
  2. Though they may lose a few fans with their new sound, You Say Party! We Say Die! do a fine job of growing into a truly interesting band on XXXX.

    There's a dash of Yeah Yeah Yeahs about the opening scenes of this Brirtsh Columbia band's vivacious third album, which should have them gracing bigger indie dance-floors. [Jun 2010, p.109]
  4. Although there;s wnough kicky keyboard-pop to satisfy long-time fans, the darker nuances are a welcome evolution. [Mar 2010, p.98]
  5. A calm but affirming end to an album brimming with energy may seem a sort of juxtaposition, but it works so well with an album that is practically a live show in itself. [Winter 2010, p.70]
  6. The slower pace and more sentimental outlook of XXXX gives listeners the necessary space and encouragement to surrender to the band's emotional message.
  7. Too much of XXXX is spent recycling tired dance-punk moves for it to succeed as a whole.
