    This album skips by far lighter than more ponderous collections like 2004's Together We're Heavy. [Sep 2013, p.88]

    Even with the group’s slight retraction, it’s that madcap sense of wonder and lofty ambition that helps keep Yes, It’s True healthily afloat.
  4. As ever, their relentless chirpiness can grate, but the orchestral indulgence has been pared back, giving ringleader Tim DeLaughter’s songwriting room to breathe.

    While it’s likely to be the most enthusiastic record you hear all year, Yes, It’s True is probably the band’s weakest album yet.

    On record Yes, It's True feels insubstantial, which is disappointing because when they don't go overboard they can still craft interesting music.

    Unlike Rubble Guts & BB Eye, Yes, It’s True never surprises itself with its own excitement.

Probably their most refined collection of songs with some some cool new flavours added to their choral power pop mix.

Their music still drips in sunshine and sweetness, which can be annoying after 11 tracks. But they continue to stand out as a band because of it Expand
