CRITIC REVIEWS

The Tarnished Gold sees them return sounding fresh and revitalised, delivering an album that more than matches their earlier output.

A.V. Club

The Tarnished Gold is a lovely record, albeit a little hippie-dippy.

77
Pitchfork

The Tarnished Gold is an impressively vital showing from a group that deserves to be known as something more than that other Beach band on Sub Pop.

Paste

The Tarnished Gold presents a comforting, if occasionally too comfortable, return to form.

PopMatters

For the reunion, Beachwood Sparks have ditched the hydra head approach and seem to be of one mind.
