CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

It upholds the band's gold standard as they continue to refine their formula: kick drums like rifle shots, earworm guitar riffs played with electric glee, no-frills solos no less punk rock for their existence.

Pretty Much Amazing

III is an early contender for the most enjoyable record of the year. Spanning just four tracks, Sheer Mag’s latest is a prolonged roller coaster peak that's all exhilaration and zero comedown.

Spin

III’s messages are more direct, and they’re couched in broken Jailbreak hooks and caffeine-addled guitarmonies more teeth-chattering and addictive than anything they’ve released to date.

III, like their entire short discog, is relentlessly catchy, which is a difficult trait to exalt in contrast to conceptual depth or instrumental brilliance.

Still good but less than I and II.

Phil Lynnot would have been proud.

Fun lo-fi rock music with TONS of character. I like what I'm hearing, and am certainly looking forward to Sheer Mag's full-length
