In taking a little bit of a chance Times New Viking have lost only a little of what made them distinctive, but they've gained much in melodic and compositional coherence.

Dancer Equired is a fine and mature next entry in the growing catalog of three of Columbus’ finest.

For all the praise heaped on Times New Viking, Dancer Enquired is the band’s first truly great record.

The hearts of these songs are animated, the hooks sparkle in the grime, and the Ohio band clarifies what they want to say without changing how they say it.

It’s an enjoyable album, but hamstrung by its punk need to act like it’s not giving a fuck.

It features some of their strongest songs to date, but it's not enough to salvage the exhaustive, pouring reverberation.
