“‘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
“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!
“Hyperbole is warranted. “Cruel Thing” is a thrilling, shiver-inducing torch song that condenses and focuses the Sharp Things’ best traits: their honkin’, eleven-members-strong sound, their savvy songwriting, and their infectious energy.” — All Music Guide
”’There Will Be Violins’ is one of those great album openers that’s about the album itself…It’s a statement of intent, and the intent is: this is not just another boring band with guitars.” —Working For The Clampdown
