  1. With absolutely perfect production, the end result is one that’s embracing, textured, warm, and still fun.
  2. Well-played post-rock was always the bedrock of Windsor's sound, but they've added angst, a flayed post-punk edge, and new-wave organ loops to their ambition, creating a sound that should be familiar to Yo La Tengo fans, yet remains distinctly this band's own.
  3. Overall, this record is strong throughout, illuminated with inspiration and optimistic subject matter.

    If the likes of 154-era Wire, early Cure and New Order appeal, this is for you. [Oct 2004, p.101]
  5. McNeely and Matz have found their calling and left a lasting impression with this fierce yet fragile album.
  6. Blender

    WFTD occasionally give in to the urge to crank up the fuzz and play straight-up indie rock, but the narrower each song's scope is, the more it feels like it should go on forever. [Oct 2004, p.131]
  7. Snippets of gothica integrated into a robust post-Cure party shake, which never come at the expense of the focused precision and attention to atmosphere and nuance the group's always had.
  8. We Fight Til Death gets distracted easily; all of its ideas are great, but they don't always come to fruition.
