  1. Broudie... supplies the record with more thrust and polish than some of these half-written songs deserve.
  2. 84
    Chock full of indie anthems that possess the straightforward bravado of early Oasis singles, the punch of Ash's finest moments and Kurt Cobain's ear for a pop hook amidst the noise and confusion. [#19, p.101]
  3. [A] sterling debut. [Mar 2006, p.122]
  4. Young For Eternity ultimately makes them a likable new addition to the rock scene.
  5. Too often the rawk they bring feels terribly labored.
  6. 60
    Some occasional local-band lyricism proves to be an Achilles Heel. [Sep 2005, p.108]
  7. 50
    What's missing so far... is the offbeat charisma that would make the Subways into something more than a high-school cover band that got lucky. [Apr 2006, p.118]

    this is just to even out what Kid A and TG Corke marked the album. No album should get a 0.

    While the songwriting isn't mind-blowing, the subways combine the simplicity of nirvana with a vines type sound and enforce it all with While the songwriting isn't mind-blowing, the subways combine the simplicity of nirvana with a vines type sound and enforce it all with their passion and energy to create a great debut that truly hints at great things to come Expand

    As a debut album from young kids, it sounds really promising. It's a straightforward album, in which simplicity and honesty dominates As a debut album from young kids, it sounds really promising. It's a straightforward album, in which simplicity and honesty dominates all the songs. No fancy riffs and adornments, just plain teeny rock n' roll / punk. The instrumentals aren't outstanding, but they are competent. The vocals are very nice and, at times, very inspired, while the lyrics are simple, but they don't jeopardize the songs. Expand

    Absolutely pathetic band, terrible album, derivative kiddie rubbish, unoriginal, bland, unimaginative...need I say more? There is only one Absolutely pathetic band, terrible album, derivative kiddie rubbish, unoriginal, bland, unimaginative...need I say more? There is only one band worse than Fall Out Boy, and that band is The Subways. Horrific 'music' right here. Expand
