    In Our Bones is a versatile, ballsy take on modern pop-rock, and it’s impossible not to sit back and admire as Chrissy, Dan and Will take another step on the way to superstardom.

    Against The Current have made the record they've been threatening to do so for years. [7 May 2016, p.40]

    Against The Current's most mature and polished release yet. [Jun 2016, p.99]

    There's not much new in the way of substance, but the execution is nonetheless pleasing enough that you can shrug off flat or dull offerings (see, e.g., "Brighter" or "Wasteland"). It's a nice record filled with nice moments.

It wasn’t until the beginning of 2016 when this band really game me starving anticipation for a debut album, and I instantly fell in love with their discography prior to this. Then came the announcement of this record and the leadoff single ‘Running With The Wild Things’ and I was amazed. I waited three months until the day this album came out, and when I finally got to listen to this album, I was blown away immediately. I loved this album from the second it was released, and the best tracks are ‘One More Weekend’, ‘Blood Like Gasoline’, ‘Wasteland’ ‘Running With The Wild Things’, quite possibly the entire record is flawless and fantastic. As it has been four years since the release of this album, it still holds up as a legendary album in 2020, and ATC will do anything to satisfy listeners in the best way possible. Expand

    This is the type of post modern pop that most pop bands attempt to write and perform, only to fall on their faces. Against the Current hitsThis is the type of post modern pop that most pop bands attempt to write and perform, only to fall on their faces. Against the Current hits every necessary beat, from the razor-sharp production to the fun lyrics, to Costanza's electrifying voice. It's an overall excellent album. Expand
