'When discussing supergroups, I am sure we can all agree there are some that have exceeded all artistic expectations (Methods Of Mayhem, McBusted) and others that have been crushing disappointments (Winery Dogs, La Coka Nostra). Astute Palate fall squarely between the two (I respect you far too much to engage in hyperbole) but the results of this unique collaboration feel like a fully realized thing as just as much as any of the projects they've spearheaded previously (Writhing Squares, Storks, Watery Love, David Nance's Rock'n'Roll Circus). If you're anticipating some kind of hastily conceived, vague 'jam' exercise in directionless fuckery, well, I take it back. You will be disappointed, bitterly. But if your attention span can handle genuine songcraft, incendiary guitar work and a band that sounds improbably fused together, Astute Plane's debut will rank very high on your list of 2021's best releases (and I'm not saying that simply because I anticipate the closing of all pressing plants, if not the end of all commercial activity by March 1 of next year).' - Gerard Cosloy
