They may still be a work in progress, but that progress thus far is demonstrative of an increasingly innovative band, one working too hard to slump.

Strapped impossible not to like to some extent; it takes influence from pop-rock most of all, and the hooks that it contains are fantastic

The Soft Pack’s knack for a no-tassels hook is what ends up making Strapped worthwhile, and it works best when they tighten the screws and keep it concise.

Long and lush isn't a bad look for the Soft Pack, so long as they're keeping the beat.

Strapped isn’t groundbreaking, especially by the standards The Soft Pack have set for themselves.

Strapped's thirty-something minutes of southern California rock doesn't turn the page on anything new, but is still a worthy listen.

It is a straightforward and solid return from a band who sound unsure whether to stick or twist.

Strapped is an album that seems to both highlight the Soft Pack’s strengths and glaringly reveal their limitations to this point.
