"This is the indie equivalent of power pop, an unreservedly good thing. We Are Scientists’ debut full-length album is full of post-punk of a particularly energetic and rambunctious sort. The classic three-piece line-up formation – vocals/guitar, bass and drums – and a not uncommon notion of what makes a tune catchy makes for workhorse stuff. Still, they can hold their heads up high and stand proudly alongside their more successful peers – the likes of Hot Hot Heat and Ambulance Ltd – by virtue of their decidedly spiky and rudely lively sound."

We Are Scientists bring a sound of fresh air to the genre. When everyone else just plays the same tune, these boys just came to bring em down. do it.
"While we are becoming a society afflicted with ADD, it is refreshing to see bands like Circa Survive that continue to give us music that hooks us early, but still values the prospect of rewarding us each time we come back. On Letting Go might not be the game-changer that Juturna was, but it is still an inviting exhibition by one of the scene’s most talented bands honing its skill sets. Pick this album up, and listen to it ten times before you make your judgment on it – if you do not find something new to love on each spin, you are not listening hard enough. All in all, when the record is finished, it sounds like Circa Survive picked just the right time to let go." (from absolutepunk.net)
Nothing reaches into the core of your soul than the lyrics and music of Circa Survive. I don't know, don't have words. They're simply the best. period. Let it in your head. Peace.
"There’s something to be said for peace, serenity, and level-headedness in music. While oftentimes I’m looking for something to charge me up or at least get my head bobbing, a soothing soundscape can be the right prescription in times of tension and stress. Yet, there also needs to be an element compelling me to listen beyond those first couple relaxing minutes. The Album Leaf is a project (steered by mastermind Jimmy LaValle) that has repeatedly shown the ability to make such music, and while it may not draw them legions of devout fans, that just makes their efforts all the more noble."

Although this album didn't receive the review I expected, it is still oh so awesome. Relaxing. Peaceful. Full of life. I just like it a lot. But you can tell me what you think later on when you've fallen in love with it. Peace.
"This release, like much of Minus the Bear's previous material, is nearly flawless. The band has tapped into such an original sound, with their layered, single-note guitar playing, driving drums, and superior bass lines, that not many can argue with them. Oh, and the vocals are pretty much flawless as well. This is a band that continues to completely impress, and has only gotten stronger with each release they have put out." ( from Rocknworld.com )
Minus The Bear don't just make exceptional, well played out music, they pour so much feeling into the song you just can't help but feel identified with one of them. This album is just full of beautiful music you won't stop listening to. Enjoy.
