"With their sophomore release, it’s clear that We Are The Union have in fact taken great leaps forward, proving that the record's title is perfect. They have created a concise, well-constructed album that showcases all of their skills. It seems that We Are The Union have no plans to stop moving forward any time soon. "
"From first listen, I really latched onto We Are The Union's sound. A great mix of straight up pop-punk and ska with touches of hardcore punk influence gives the listener a fast paced, upbeat mix plate of the several different style these guys touch upon. Althought not an original style, these guys do it better than most, harking back to the older skacore sound that bands like The Mighty Mighty Bosstones popularized in the early to mid 90's."
"I first heard We Are The Union about 3 months ago, while I was searching through Paper and Plastick’s impressive line up. I went over to their MySpace, and instantly fell in love with What We Have Here Is a Failure to Communicate. It’s a great song, and worthy of every bit of praise. There’s enough commotion to grab you and get you energized, but it’s clean enough to grasp and bob your head to. It’s fun, but again, sounds like everything else on this record."
"Point is, Who We Are is fun. Catchy and quick, with a dash of posi and political connotations, these 11 songs will embed themselves deeper into your brainy bits than a Ceti eel from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan."
"You will start getting hooked on the swift punk tracks such as “This Is a Farewell Kiss, You Dog” and the instant classic album ender “Be Kind Rewind,” both of which rely on sliding melodic guitars and nonstop percussion — as well as ending far too quickly and leave me asking for an encore."
"Open up your ears, let the record take you in, and once you catch your breath... go back and re-live it. There's a pleasant sense of joy, honesty and all-around good intentions surrounding Great Leaps Forward, and with the current wave of bands making music this sincere... it allows you to forgive the few mishaps that come along the way."
