"They play solid, mature songs that straddle the line between pop-rock and indie-pop; just enough cohesive song structures and production values for the former, just enough wistful moods and slow-building melodies to appropriate the former. The Seldon Plan’s latest set is easily the best that I’ve heard from them. They’ve grown into a sound and a style that makes the best of their skills and talents. This album is a gem that should not be overlooked by anyone listening for true musicianship and song craftsmanship. I don’t know what their ambitions are, but if they were in my hometown, I’d go see them whenever I could. And I’d sing along."

"Much has been said about The Seldon Plan as of lately. But not near enough for a group that covers so many different aspects of indie rock. This Baltimore based group of ageless rockers know that the past always influences the future. They understand that there is not always a need to create anything more than good ole fashion rock and roll that with roots in the past. Watch these clean cut dudes shred their way throw that mature sound they are becoming widely known for. The dedication in their moves prove that they are beyond replicating the drive free sounds of the 90’s, and more likely to shove their determination down your throat one chord progression at a time. And isn’t that we were always looking for anyway?"

"So, on that note: The Seldon Plan’s Coalizione del Volere is an album that I believe is absolutely fucking fantastic, and you will absolutely adore it. Rules are meant to be broken. And with an album like this, it is perfectly acceptable to raise the bar all the way to the heavens. They have the means to back themselves up on product alone.his Baltimore based indie pop group has been impressing audiences and critics alike for the better part of the last decade with their 90′s anti-aspiration towards change attitude they generously fuse with unique vision of a band living independently the age of now.The real common denominator here is just plain raw talent and an engrossing consciousness that allows these rockers a chance to create some beautiful indie pop treasures."

"This is the fourth release from The Seldon Plan to be covered in these pages. We've been impressed by these folks' music in the past...but never more so than now. Coalizione del Volere may just be the band's strongest disc yet. After the release of their 2009 album Lost and Found and Lost the band took a break before (thankfully) making the decision to pick up and continue. Hopefully the guys in this band will continue making music for decades to come. They just keep getting better over time. TOP PICK."
“…it’s delightful to see this Baltimore foursome’s continued maturation…in a burst of new flavor, comparing favorably with melodic pop favorites such as Feelies’ offshoot Wild Carnation, Winnipeg’s wonderful Weakerthans, Camera Obscura, and Portland’s Dimes, in the aggressive jangle-pop”
