This begins like Arcade Fire doing an anti-folk number before falling into a hole that David Berman might have dug one day whilst thinking of directions to take the Silver Jews in.

6/10 Brian Staff review, 09 September 2010

This begins like Arcade Fire doing an anti-folk number before falling into a hole that David Berman might have dug one day whilst thinking of directions to take the Silver Jews in. Or possibly a ramshackle downbeat hybrid of Bon Iver & Fire on Fire? This is the new project of some former & current Great Lake Swimmers members. It's all a little too chugging, twinkly & maudlin for my tastes , often very typical of the slightly rustic, nu-country style that many Americana style bands are producing. 'It's All Going To End' really reminds me of Sparklehorse - a much missed & precious band that, guess what? - I didn't bloody get! There's a few cracking atmospherics & strong, evocative moments on this album but I'm largely left feeling like the current vogue of folkrock-noir has rapidly run out of steam & any fresh ideas. I've heard it all far too much in recent years and it is starting to resemble Arcade Fire's miserable arse or a poor man's Deserters Songs. Sorry.
