    For its third proper album, Bishop Allen continued to perfect their amalgam of riff-centered, wittily lyrical, Pavement-influenced college rock and indie-pop sweetness. On "South China Moon," band principals Justin Rice and Christian Rudder nearly capture an ideal middle space that would sound at home on a Joe Jackson record, except for the twinkling atmosphere that occasionally breaks in between choruses. And when the appealing topsoil of meaty power chords erodes into semi-acoustics on cuts like "Oklahoma," the pair's knack for wordplay and catchy phrasing fills in GRRR.'s quirkier moments with an almost Kinks-worthy charm.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.77) - "The third Kinks-y compendium of postadolescent dithering by this whip-smart Brooklyn band is as melodically clever and musically detailed as ever..."
    Paste (magazine) (p.64) - "Falling largely within the pleasing indie-pop framework....[With] perfectly annunciated lyrics, layered instrumentation [and] infectious melodies..."
    Clash (magazine) (p.107) - "GRR... is instantly loveable and the feeling that it will be a permanent fixture in your stereo for months to come gets increasingly stronger with every listen. An absolute triumph."
