"...Pool House, among the coolest songs I've heard all year..."
"minimal tropicalia and druid moans run wild...note the especially stoic “Honey Island” for which there is a video...full and plentiful in sound, ranging from ambient jives to 80s new wave ballads."
--- Weekly Tape Deck
"The Never Years comes across, at least somewhat, like an early Radio Dept. However, the vocals are deeper and have a sadness unaccounted for in that other group...Given these sounds, one would expect them to hail from some exotic land – Sweden perhaps, or New York...No, they come from Houston. Well played, Texas."

"I had never heard of them but now I want more..."
--- Site Of Sound
"...stunning pop gem “Honey Island”, features lovely aquatic adventures that will most likely render you nostalgic for summertime dips in the ocean."
