"[Gift Horse] takes the oaky style that can only be bred in steamy southern heat and pairs it with the Seattle sound of grunge to make a brand of garage-y shoe-gaze all their own....A hauntingly atmospheric record."

"'Plastic People' is nothing short of grimy, with heavily distorted, droning guitars mashed with hollow, almost-half-hearted vocals from Hunter Morris. 'Missionaries' dials back the distortion significantly and offers a slightly cleaner sound overall while still basking in the same grungy charm."
-MAGNET Magazine

"Gift Horse generate a brooding, bulky, booming monster of a sound. Dense, sprawling mini-epics where pockets of calm are upended with 30-foot-tall waves of guitars, drums and atmospheric embellishments."

"Call it bootgaze. The combination of the heavy psychedelic rock and dark shoegaze makes the album a tour de force. Mountain of Youth brings out the best in Gift Horse: the sound is still as dense as ever, its reverb blanketing the listener with a false sense of security, but now that wall of sound strikes with deadly precision."

"The cold only seemed to fortify the band as they bashed through thirty-plus minutes of damaged sludge-rock."

"A mixture of shoegaze, grunge and indie-drone resulting in a very atmospheric and emotional wall of sound."
-GOLDMINE Magazine

"In short, the quartet has struck an alluring balance of earth and ether, of muscle and dreamlike ambience."

"Mountain sledgehammers said assumption, taking it’s time over 10 tracks and 44 minutes to repeatedly assault speakers and astound the listener into remembering the rock of decades gone that’s been so sorely missed...a near flawless collection of shoegaze rock the way it’s meant to sound."

"It sweeps the listener right into the full-on, bluesy shoegaze tsunami of “Both of Me�, but then a funny thing happens: All that stony gauze suddenly dissipates like so much Slowdive-y smoke by an open window, just as the album’s early upward trajectory hits its clear high water mark: “Missionaries�, a heavily stomping, perfectly mid-tempo slacker-rock anthem of monstrous proportions, the kind of thing I’d have proudly committed to a mix tape between songs by Sebadoh and Nirvana maybe 18 years ago."
-CRAWDADDY! Magazine

"Gift Horse is keen on dissonant, shoegaze chords heavy with distortion and dripping with moody atmosphere."
-PREFIX Magazine"
