    The other peak performance is Longest Day Of The Year Blues, a deceptively languid doo wop ballad where the delicate tools that are Slade, Young and drummer Olly Joyce continue to punch well above their weight. [Feb 2014, p.94]
  2. 80
    Peggy Sue’s fourth LP impresses throughout, a record of soulful depths and heady, emotional highs.
  3. Jan 27, 2014
    Guitars intertwine and gather around them, in ever-thickening skeins of picking and strumming, pulling a listener into all the mesmerizing turbulence of those troubled romances.
  4. Jan 23, 2014
    All in all--strong lyrics, powerful vocal harmonies and unpredictable melodies make Choir of Echoes a fascinating, enjoyable listen.
  5. Jan 27, 2014
    Peggy Sue may always be a little too quirky to reap the mainstream success of some of their contemporaries, but their versatility is a strength they can bank on in the long run.
  6. Uncut
    Jan 21, 2014
    As with their prime influence PJ Harvey, they explore much beyond. [Feb 2014, p.80]
  7. Jan 27, 2014
    The band has honourable aims with its vocal intent and concept, but fails to inspire with its content, nor deliver on its promises.
