A Place To Bury Strangers My Special Agent 33 1/3 SHVS A Place To Bury Strangers have often been called "the loudest band in New York". This may very well be the case, but unlike much so-called "loud" rock and roll that's out there, APTBS is not loud simply for the sake of it. The sonically overdriven sound they've accomplished is no clumsy accident, but a carefully cultivated and well-maintained entity all its own, fostered by an unbridled passion that's clearly evident in every live show they play and each recording they make. A Place To Bury Strangers does not so much play songs as allow them to pour out. They are songs about longing, heartbreak and confusion played extremely well and at a passionately loud volume.

“My Special Agent is a Comic Con-ers dream: the armageddon of "Overdue" and "Chameleon", the sultry seductress shenanigans of "Nice Gaius" and "Anger Danger", and even a pirate song "Sea Shantey" (and who couldn't use more of those?). Spacey soundscapes and techno-lyrics sublimely swirl together to take the listener out of this world into an all-too-real-fantasy role-playing-game soundtrack. Live, the band has deftly handled brave choices from Portishead to Morphine, thanks to the gender-switching vocals and may I say about time? Thigh-high boots are assumed, but do they wear capes or cloaks? I'm guessing whichever best hides their blasters.”
