"Across the album, on songs like the opener “Planetary” and “Blasting Sound”, a wall of swirling guitars move from shoegazing crescendos into pumping alt-rock anthems. Slate and his bandmates create something between Sparta (the post-At The Drive In band that actually wrote songs!) and Dischord alumni such as Jawbox — the tunes chug along, definitely driven by those guitars, with Slate alternating between ferocious yelping and seemingly introspective singing."
