"Refreshingly breath-taking, an album to fall in love with"
-Clash Magazine, 8/10
"...the best album to come out of Canada since Funeral."
-Artrocker, 5***** stars
"This is Arcade Fire with ration books and gas masks, or Elliott Smith fronting Sparklehorse... stunning, subtle and romantic."
"That Woodpigeon's winningly under-stated debut can't be easily labelled is just one enticing element in the manifold attractions of this accomplished, quietly intelligent, playful and really rather enchanting debut."
"Rustic Countryfied charm with an air of spontaneity."
"A Robust Tunng crossed with a more ethereal King Creosote."
"Canada's best-kept secret ... the most unjustly overlooked band in Canada."

- Artrocker, 4 stars
The Young Republics subtle borrowings and hidden homages play out against a larger, intricately designed canvas and makes significant claims for a band whose time has come.
