With Neck of the Woods, Silversun Pickups not only reminds listeners of what a particular band in the ‘90s sounded like, but also how refreshing rock ’n’ roll sounded at the time.

It’s a small but welcome progression for a band that has long worked within a frightfully narrow retro-genre of its own making.

Neck of the Woods sees Silversun Pickups’ gaze averted from their shoes and turned instead to the hard ground that they stand upon.

Everything that Silversun Pickups fans love is here, high production, high quality alternative rock.

Neck of the Woods on its own is a good album, sure, but sabotages itself by giving us less to latch on to.

It feels like a work in progress, skeletally over-precise and over-long.

Neck of the Woods takes a similar middle of the road approach, and as a result, the Pickups sound oddly de-fanged.

 Silversun Pickups have a way of making their most grandiose gestures sound passive and timid.

Love the sense of danger and urgency throughout the entire album. The songs have great hooks and an amazing, dark theme that is present in every song.
