    Shannon Shaw's heart-in-throat vocals and the Clams' joyous abandon take hold right away and rip breezily but dramatically through 13 lovely new songs.

    Shannon & the Clams have hit the peak of their powers here, making good on their promising early records and improving on the already strong record that came before. Here's hoping they can keep it up for many more great rock & roll albums to come.

    Gone by the Dawn deftly blends a joyful escape musically with the weighty emotional journey of the lyrics, and Shannon and the Clams have more than topped themselves on the record, pushing to a whole new level.

    Gone By The Dawn is, at many turns, a lovely record. But it also seems to be a transitional record, as the group tries to find a more distinctive place for itself beyond '50s and '60s nostalgia.

    The impressive balancing act between formal cheese-balling and emotional sucker-punching, however, is 100 percent their own.

    It might not be a styling anyone was demanding for, but once it's in your focus, you won't find a band that do it better.

    It's their fourth album in six years, but quality hasn't wavered. [Oct 2015, p.94]
