Village Voice : "Jarring solos and bloodletting dives...But CEG ain't just all show; their woozy riffs rival the Flaming Lips, the priapic yawps a direct rebuttal to Modest Mouse."

Pitchfork: "they never lose their volubility, but seemed always poised to pounce at any moment. More often than not, they did. Cymbals weren't just loud, they sounded monumental."

Anthem Magazine:

"You could blame it on so many bands being from autophobic NYC, or that the Pacific Northwest gods of indie are still going too strong to already be a primary influence, but neither would explain New York's Cymbals Eat Guitars' Why There Are Mountains. While there's plenty of geographical signifiers on their debut, it's almost topographic in its approach, without hooks and choruses so much as map-like layouts of mountains and sloping valleys." -- Pitchfork [Best New Music]

"The most obvious thing​ about ​Cymbals Eat Guitars is that their ​epic, widescreen​ indie ​rock bears ​a striking resemblance to that of Built ​To Spill​ and early​ Modest Mouse​." - Fluxblog

"Why There Are Mountains may be one of the best 'indie' (the album is self-released, so, y'know, actually 'indie') albums of the year. And with the major label skyline being obliterated like something out of Independence Day, it's time to batten down the hatches." - NME

"Staten Island quartet Cymbals Eat Guitars came out of seemingly nowhere when, a little under a month ago, their debut album, Why There Are Mountains, was bestowed Pitchfork's "Best New Music" honor. Who were these guys? Staten Island, seriously? They were, of course, four hustling musicians who'd struck gold on the songwriting front, crafting a beastly, obtuse album that sounds a lot like Built To Spill, if Built To Spill actually had some youth on their side and could still throw down in a street fight or get upset over a girl." - RCRD LBL

"“The band’s sound is hugely ambitious, explosively energetic force of nature that is clearly influenced by a multitude of 90’s indie rock classics from Pavement to Built to Spill
to Modest Mouse while still achieving something that is forward-looking and unpredictable.” - MTVU

"I’ll be the first to go on record saying that Cymbals Eat Guitars/Joseph Ferocious will end up indie famous within the year." - Charles Bissel, The Wrens
