"Porcupine generate enough hooks to open a fishing appliance store with the Queens of the Stone Age influenced grooves as the most popular choice of bait.....the concrete drums and bass work in unison as a solid backbone while the guitarist and his vocals occasionally wander off, returning to provide the instrumentation a real punch"

"There is something about a loud and distorted Fender Jazzmaster sound that is a beautiful thing. Perhaps this is one reason why I see resemblance to Dinosaur Jr., as that heavy Jazzmaster sound is what J. Mascis is known for. This record is full of little surprises and gems. “Dead Mint Club” is a well structured and written album highlight"

"The songs on Porcupine’s The Trouble With You combine the best parts of the late nineties/early two-thousands punk, math rock and indie rock together in a way that would have made fans of all three genres sit up and take notice. The fuzzed-out guitar riffs give way to mathy runs with a melodic bent before muscling through a chorus or two"

"The eleven tracks featured here are peppered with these sorts of quick subtle influences that all come together to form these oddball but at the same time strangely pleasant upbeat rock numbers. By the end of the album you’ve heard everything from the mathier side of Midwestern rock (ex: Self-Evident) to the muffled fuzz akin to J. Mascis to the warbled guitar tones that are usually reserved for acts considered under the shoegaze canopy"

"A nice slice of contemporary rock with its own flavour....“The Trouble With You” is a smooth and absorbing listen which somehow manages to fill the space betwixt Queen and Queens Of The Stone Age"

"A well-crafted jumble of sounds....approachable guitar-pop, even when the hooks occasionally catch listeners off- guard"
