"Perhaps no band working today makes music that better fits their name than Cigarettes After Sex" – Line of Best Fit (Album Of The Week)
"As intimate as a late–night phone call and blissfully self–assured" – GQ
"For once, the hype is entirely justified … The quartet’s smokey-eyed songs breathe with dark nuance, each devastating track allowing Greg Gonzalez’s seductive voice, one of elegant, epicene beauty, to blossom and dance in the shadows." – PopMatters
"Aching intensity… containing wit, insight and sparkle" – Uncut

"Melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness" – Rolling Stone
"…elemental, hazy, and romantic, but with a noir edge underneath Gonzalez’s androgynous voice." – Vice Noisey
