    This album has plenty of shifting tempos and is well-paced. The harmonies make it sound if Thompson and Walbourne were just meant to sing together. Don’t be steered away from what may be described as “folk rock.” This has a thumping pulse and plenty of stunning moments.

    While Cancel the Sun tends to stay within somewhat predictable – yet highly enjoyable – arrangements, there are moments when curveballs are thrown and produce jarring yet pleasant results.

    Notably rockier than its more pastoral predecessors and all the finer for it. [Oct 2019, p.33]

    There's social critique and black humour in spades, though the blanket-warm harmonies often smother The Rails' tougher messages. But if you want comfort in trying times, wrap up here. [Sep 2019, p.90]
