"a rock record for the ages" – Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’ (8.8)

"Every track’s an anthem, every second precious, on this breathless new album." BBC Music

"These two know how hard they’ve worked to buy themselves some time, and how expensive and precious time can get, the darkness of maturity creeping closer but never quite arriving. This is not the sound of settling." – Spin (9/10)

"The sound of fireworks begins and ends the album; in between more pyrotechnics come courtesy of the guitarist Brian King’s rapid-fire riffs and the drummer David Prowse’s pummeling gallop." – The New York Times

"Japandroids simultaneously epitomise and critique the act of being in a wicked awesome cult rock band." Drowned in Sound

"Imagine a different Eighties: The Replacements made Born in the USA, Hüsker Dü were Hulk Hogan’s entrance music, and indie rock was the keggercrushing choice of Top Gun America." – Rolling Stone, 4 Stars

"it’s an album about need and immediacy and getting shit off your chest. There’s no holding it back." – Stereogum’s ‘Album of the Week’

"Celebration Rock encapsulates the kind of affirmative, collective experiences that define an entire adolescence." The Quietus
