    It's a record you'll return to again and again, such is the strength of the songs. [5 Mar 2016, p.50]

    Overall, Muncie Girls have created a fresh touch to the mixture of indie and punk. The band has officially mastered their sound and made ten songs the band should truly be proud of.

    While Muncie Girls might tread relatively familiar musical territory on From Caplan to Belsize, it’s Hekt’s acerbic, no-frills lyricism that shines brightest.

    I've been waiting for an album to match Alvvay's debut album and fill the role of my next summer album. There isn't a single lyric on thisI've been waiting for an album to match Alvvay's debut album and fill the role of my next summer album. There isn't a single lyric on this album that doesn't call to the wanderlust and discovery of being a young adult. At 10 songs, the album never overstays its welcome, although I would like it to be a little longer. If that is the only criticism to have for an album, it must be pretty damn good. Expand

The drum tracks are interesting, but the bass and guitar are rather lackluster. However, the songs do possess a fairly decent display of lyricism. The songwriting is solid. Overall: Not amazingly interesting, but might lead to better things in the future. Expand
