“Rainbow Quartz Sparkling full-length debut from Vancouver groovers. While respectfully observing every rule in the book of how to make the perfect power-pop album, this Canadian fivepiece have nonetheless managed to stamp their own identity on a frequently delightful compendium of hooks, harmonies and hipperthan-thou grooves. Well-fed on vintage Raspberries and mastering the odd Cheap Trick, TOH also reference Big Star (Medicine Tree) and even Crowded House (Let's Stay In Instead). But there's a unifying sound to these great tunes, a fraternal telepathy between Rory Jamie and Derek Macdonald that represents a thoughtful distillation of bygone sounds rather a lazy exercise in derivation. The harmonium flourishes of Sofa Surfer Girl and Ballad In Plain E suggest a boldness and sense of fun that eludes so many other guitar groups with good intentions but a drought of ideas. ••••••••”
