Sophisticated and ambitious - 4 out of 5 stars! - All Music Guide
What The Legal Matters have done is recognize the recipe for a great power pop song: Take an inventive set of chords, sing a hummable melody over it, and layer it with harmonies. Lather, rinse, repeat. - Hook & Harmony
The Legal Matters have made an album that easily makes my top-ten year end list - 9 out of 10 stars - Power Popaholic
The Legal Matters is an album that renews my faith in modern guitar pop and has re-awakened my desire to track down every worthwhile Power Pop album that I may have missed over the last 20 years. But will they be as good as this? I seriously doubt it. - Discussions Magazine
The Legal Matters is the best long-player I have heard so far this year. It is hard to imagine anything coming out in the second-half of the year to eclipse it. - Pop That Goes Crunch
One of the best melodic pop albums of this or any other year. - Pure Pop Radio
