    The best of the songs heard on LP3 are those where the more traditional rock elements compliment Restorations’ more relentless tendencies.

    LP3 hits life-affirming pinnacles upon its insistent yowls. [Nov 2014, p.98]

    Restorations have left everything on the table with LP3, and the enormity of their vision as a rock band has largely been realized.

    LP3 is instrumentally nuanced. [No. 115, p.61]

    Restorations is a band that indeed seems to believe in everything: the raw gut-punch of punk, the catharsis and euphoria of stadium rock, the necessity of looking backward and moving forward. In the hands of inferior musicians, that commitment to indulging all these beliefs would result in disaster. Here, it makes for one hell of a ride.

    Any hype bestowed upon them following LP2 has proven warranted with LP3.

    When their trio of guitarists aren't busy auditioning for Ozzy or Springsteen, they summon dynamic, smartly-shaded echo caverns more reminiscent of Sunny Day Real Estate and Modest Mouse.
