7/10 Andy Customer review, 14th August 2014
Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired is just completely enthralling. It's an utterly loveable album which truly says more in those 13 minutes than some bands manage in entire careers. This was bold move for Joyce Manor, but one that exemplifies exactly why they're loved. This is how an album should be made, stripping the songs down just enough so that when you start to listen you never lose your focus. And "Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired" does just that, it keeps your focus with catchy and fast songs like "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "Bride of Usher". But it also knows when to slow down a bit, take a rest and turn down the amps with "Drainage" and "I'm Always Tired". What so great about the album is that it accomplishes so much in just thirteen minutes, thirteen perfect minutes. You never feel like skipping a song, everyone of them is essential, and it's just a perfect album with no fillers.
9/10 Marisa Customer review, 31st August 2013
Full of short, raw-sounding songs, Joyce Manor doesn't certainly disappoint with Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired. This record contrasts with their previous self-titled, which included more melodic sounds like Constant Headache, but with energetic songs such as the opener, These Kind of Ice Skates, to the slower nostalgic Drainage, the album shows different sides and sounds to the band.
Bride of Usher is one of the highlights of the album, as a particularly upbeat song with a poppy sound, while retaining something that makes it easy and enjoyable to listen to. Not to be forgotten is the band's cover of Video Killed the Radio Star - adding their own twist to match their usual sound, it's yet another catchy track on the album.
It's hard to pinpoint what genre Joyce Manor would fall under, but I've yet to find anything by them that disappoints. Despite the fact that they tend to produce songs that rarely ever hit the 3-minute mark, this was one of the best albums of 2012.
