CRITIC REVIEWS

American Songwriter

Everything about the intriguingly titled Sea of Noise — from the classy but never predictable production, to sharp playing, clever lyrics, memorable melodies and especially the dialed down arrangements — is an enormous step forward.

AllMusic

While its more serious tone may disappoint some fans of Half the City, Sea of Noise's performances are just as tight and as passionate, and even more impressive in their maturity and scope.

Sea of Noise is a powerful testament to the unflagging power of music borne from faith and conviction.

Rolling Stone

It's gratifying to hear them step up their vision on their second LP.

Some amazing tracks but others fall flat. There is more life in Young Sick Camilia but Paul's voice is still magical and the instrumentals are always on point.

FVTrks: Crumbling Light Posts, Pt.1, Flow with it (you got me feeling like), I'll be your woman, Is it me

I saw this band perform live a while back. I love the lead singer’s voice and he is an incredible performer. But some tracks on this album just... are so bland.
