Consequence of Sound

Despite (or maybe because of) the lack of clutter, this is an album at least on par with any of the Gallants’ prior output.

A.V. Club

The good news is Two Gallants’ five-year lapse hasn’t changed the band much. The bad news is that maybe it should have. 


Two Gallants are dead serious about their enterprise, which means the album can sound airless and antiseptic, without the dusty mess and mystery of real history.
