“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!”

“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
“Here Comes The Sharp Things brims with wistful words and lush, careful arrangements that offer stylistic nods back to the ‘60s. But this is no nostalgic trip; instead, the Sharp Things manage a fine balance of the old and the new, and the result is an earnest, aching, and often finely crafted timelessness.” —All Things Considered
