Full Fathom Five - first reviews
“a definite contender for best album in 2013." Powerpopaholic
"may well end up being the power pop album of the year." When You Motor Away . . .
"a potent set of ‘60s-inspired power pop with jangly Rickenbacker guitar, rich harmonies and bright melodic hooks." KEXP 90.3 FM
"the songs sound completely new and unheard, yet all the while familiar... as if they must exist as 60's classics in some alternate universe." Cincinnati Music Examiner
"takes cues from the timeless jangle of R.E.M. and the Kinks. Professional, unabashed pop-rock classicism." - Seattle Weekly
"If you are looking for a great pop album with great songwriting there is no need to look any further. Shake Some Action! made a hell of an album." Indie Music Album Reviews
"This band just keeps getting better! Rickenbacker 12-string riffs are literally busting out on every track. “Rivers of My Mind” takes top honors as my “Song of the Month,” but it just nosed out several of the other tracks on this disc. Full Fathom Five is an early contender for 2013 Top Ten honors." - Pop Geek Heaven
"WOW!! One can detect echoes of the Hoodoo Gurus, 60's Merseybeat, Oasis at its least pompous and most invigorating, the jangling rush of Teenage Fanclub, and yes, the Flamin' Groovies. If jangly, ringing Rickenbackers are your thing, you need this! GREAT!!!" Kool Kat Musik
"Fuelled by melodic hooks, steady beats and rich harmonies, Full Fathom Five is a raw and high-energy set of guitar-oriented power pop. Hall . . . writes pop tunes in that classic style that create the illusion that they have always existed and always will." The Cascade
"Uncompromising 1960s power pop to the dome on this 5th LP by retro-fied Seattle rock outfit. If you dig shimmering jangly guitars that ring out over power pop hooks and warm choruses, this is your record. " Editor's Mix
