"Sure to follow in their friends' footsteps, Straight Lines are heading straight up." - 4/5 Big Cheese
“...passion bleeds from the speakers from the word go; from the machine gun riffery of opener Versus The Allegiance, to mature ballad Set Me On Fire. It's accomplished stuff...” – 3/5 Kerrang!
“Runaway Now' and 'Say It For Your Sake' will smash into your memory within seconds, while the aggressive riffs will carry the package into your heart.” - 8/10 Rocksound
