8/10 Jack Customer review, 9th February 2017
Lots of people encountered Okkervil River by their 2005 album Black Sheep Boy, but The Stage Names just evolves and expands the same kind of music. It's a bit less angular, a little more introspective, and a lot catchier -- it hasn't gotten any less poignant, but the melodies are rollicking fun. They embrace the rock and roll here with lots of driving riffs and great drumming. Cohesive songs that really mesh well -- they all have a wistful, expansive quality that seems to spill over their edges.
