“‘Everything Breaks’ manages the uncommon trick of being both lovely and urgent…an elegiac litany of facts, descriptions, and/or circumstances, creating a kind of beauty-meets-tragedy atmosphere” — Fingertips Music
An exquisite sound full of breathy enthusiasm and a grandeur that’s really quite impressive. The Truth Is Like The Sun could be called the Sgt. Pepper of the indie set! — No Depression
“One of the more intriguing releases in quite some time…seamlessly stitches together dozens of different influences into a cohesive quilt of modern pop…not a bum track out of ten!”
— Pop That Goes Crunch!
“Elegant and melodic, stately and graceful, this exquisitely lovely and harmonic album from a first-rate New York symphonic pop band stands tall as a beautifully lush, lulling and intricate work of sonic art.” —Jersey Beat
“A beautifully-conceived album written with skill and imagination and executed with considerable aplomb. With Foxes and Hounds The Sharp Things are surely in the hunt.” —Whisperin and Hollerin
“Gorgeous opener “I Will Always Be Swimming In This Sea” is Prince, Mercury Rev and Sgt Pepper-era Beatles, the epic “Vacationing” is Tom Waits, Todd Rundgren and even a little bit Coldplay, and the pained, soaring “Precious” is the Bad Seeds meets Philly soul with Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis on vocals. Delightful, the lot of it.” —NME
