    Perhaps inspired by the coinciding re-emergence of forebears American Steel, the Loved Ones stoke a mighty roots-punk fire on BUILD & BURN, displaying a massive maturation since their more strictly melodic Jade Tree days. To be sure, concise nuggets such as "Sarah's Game" still subsist on searing hooks, but there's a rowdy grit to tracks like "Dear Laura" that come to dominate the album's dual personality. Vocal delays and other production tricks may put off some purists, but the Loved Ones are aiming for long-term adoration, not fleeting genre fandom.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (p.133) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The album blasts off with the rollicking 'Pretty Good Year,' but that's nothing compared to the following track, 'The Inquirer,' which is the best song Hause has ever written."
    CMJ - "BUILD AND BURN is the coalescing of their different backgrounds and hits the mark in the evolution of melodic hardcore's handshake with pop punk."
