CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Consequence of Sound

A pain-ridden yet unabashed rendering of hope, Stories Don’t End finds beauty in everything from January Christmas lights to the billion-year-old stars they obscure. 

80
The 405

It's their most fulfilling and rewarding album to date; in its own way, it's the start of something new for the band - new and very, very exciting.

Paste

Stories Don’t End is crisper and more overdubbed, sprawling a tad where the first two albums flowed seamlessly. This is their most intricate music to date, full of colorful detours and surprising instrumental flavors

70
AllMusic

Stories Don't End barely registers upon the first spin (it's easy pop for the millennial generation), but if given the time to percolate, it produces a damn fine cup of coffee.

60
PopMatters

Goldsmith’s lyrics have become more verbose, and his phrasing does tend to fall into a familiar pattern that indeed lends much of Stories Don’t End a similar feel, even if it’s one that is pleasing to the ear.

60
NME

‘Stories Don’t End’ is smoother than a drive down to Malibu with the Eagles chilling in the back seat. So if it’s earthy fireside folk you’re craving, you’d best look elsewhere
