"TSOL’s real strength lies in crafting classy indie-pop songs, whose subtly elegant melodies and spindly guitar lines certainly stack up well in comparison to their more famous antecedents. I can even forgive Powne for lifting the riff from Television’s ‘Marquee Moon’ for ‘Loneliness, Incidentally’, when he can write a song as utterly fragile and wistful as ‘Alexanderplatz’. Within reasonably narrow stylistic parameters, there is certainly a lot of variety in instrumentation, sound, tempo and mood on this album. The pared-down production and sparse use of additional instruments actually accentuates this, as it avoids the kind of overblown feel that marred some of the albums Powne’s heroes released mid-career. There is a great flow to this collection of songs that bears repeated listens more than I had initially expected, and while there are no obvious killer choruses or hooks, there are plenty of memorable moments on Hour To Hour." - Rene Schaefer (Mess + Noise)
