"For all the discussion of concept, geography, and songcraft, it’s the heart pulsing through the reverb that makes Anti-Anti a must-listen." – Stereogum

"Snowden lace their upbeat, catchy guitar stomps with thoughtful lyrics diametrically opposed to mindless hipsterism." – Entertainment Weekly

"Snowden dropped a clever, catchy rock record" – The Fader

"Jeffare’s mellowed, airy vocals…meander over the
ghostly, willowed music rather than jar them from it." – Beautiful Decay

"It’s clear [Snowden] aren’t willing to just turn on the cruise control through [their] show; the performance is more like a constant pulse between implosion and explosion with each member able to flail or pull back seamlessly" – CMJ

"Snowden’s wavering gloom should be a nice fit for your
collection." – All Music Guide

"The charm of Snowden’s debut is its understated authenticity: Underneath all the accoutrements, these are Jeffares’s bedroom songs, and it’s not hard
to extrapolate to their simpler days as anguished acoustic ballads." – Village Voice

"The original Snowden taught Yossarian that man is matter– kill us and we’re dead. It’s OK for stylish post-punk to matter, too, and Anti-Anti does so without forgetting to be fun." – Pitchfork

"[Anti Anti's] balance of gloom and grandeur is brilliantly executed, ultimately leaving the listener with an insatiable thirst for more of the same." – Drowned in Sound

"Anti-Anti is a solid, even impressive, debut." – Aversion

"Pick of the month…" – Transworld Skateboarding

"The Cure never delivered gloom so buzzy." – URB

"Snowden’s music sounds like Interpol’s dark momentum getting tripped up on the Arcade Fire’s treacherous terrain – lacquered bolts of guitar judder over off-kilter percussion, and anomic vocals blear through the densely layered mix." – Paste

"[Anti-Anti is] one of the most melodic, addictive discs of 2006." – Denver Post
