Cokemachineglow.com:
“Tearjerker demonstrate a deep understanding not only of how really impactful shoegaze works, but how a really enjoyable album works. For example, closer “Slip Away”: my pulse picks up with the sternum-thumping bass palpitations, the lifts in the vocals, the clacking, muted clap-track that begins as the song washes out; it simultaneously drifts out the door and fades from clear transmission without any sense of deflating, instead leaving an uplifted, bare whiff of happiness hanging in the album’s wake. It’s a polished finish to a sophisticated album that never imposes itself as heady, polished, or sophisticated.”

"…shuffles along a dusty road, kicking pebbles of melody around empty cans of sun-bleached reverb."

Yours Truly:
“I walked off into the frigid night, clinging to the warmth of stiff drinks and good company, just tipsy enough to ride a satisfied smile all the way home.”

Crumble:
“…I like to absorb my albums before making a judgement, and this is definitely one of the better albums I heard in 2010.”

Two Way Monologues:
“Every time I listen to it, I find myself wanting to come back more. The melodies feel like they are slowly unfurling with each additional listen, becoming somehow catchier the more familiar I get with the songs.”

The Styrofoam Drone
"They have in essence released a beautiful collection of everybody’s sad aching moments transcribed within the medium of musical scores."
