8/10 according to on Wed 09 Nov, 2011

A Classic Education hit us up with their debut after a slew of well received EPs and singles. 'Call It Blazing' sees the Bologna four-piece relocate to Brooklyn, NY to record with acclaimed producer Jarvis Taveniere (Woods, Vivian Girls, Real Estate, Widowspeak, Ganglians). The results are as you'd expect, classic indie-rock songwriting with that Woods-esque echo heavy '50s style production. Taveniere's approach genuinely suits the style of group with the resulting record sounding as contemporary as it does timeless. If you've made any time in your music listening schedule to enjoy the fresh crop of blissed out indie rock bands doing the rounds lately (Ganglians, Vivian Girls, Spectrals, etc) then you'll find things on 'Call It Blazing' that will impress. The addition of unconventional rock instruments such as the theremin and violin really mix things up and it's obvious from the warmth of the recording that this one's been committed to tape not computer. Really digging the sleeve art too. Great hand painted images romanticising biker gangs, outlaw-isms and the by-gone age of youth culture. Wish I was in a biker gang.
