"Album Review (The Big Takeover): 'Find Yourself Along The Way'"

It's back, better than ever. The sound that never went away is a wave that's rising again. The guitars shimmer and soar and cry out. Like a floating breeze that has so much gravity, or a dream that keeps you awake and hoping for more, some songs float away, leaving you wondering where they went while others drive closer to the ground and grin. - The Big Takeover

"Album Review (Whisperin and Hollerin): 'Find Yourself Along The Way'"

Fabulously enigmatic, evocative stuff, dreamy and intoxicating in the extreme. Find Yourself Along The Way hoofs up some delicately mighty psych-pop thunder. Whatever you do, don't run for cover when the storm breaks.
- Tim Peacock - Whisperin and Hollerin [UK]

"Album Review (Losing Today): 'Find Yourself Along The Way'"

Trying to describe The Meeting Places debut long player with words other than beautiful is nigh on impossible. A thoroughly captivating collection of bleached out sonic pop symphonies.
- Mark Barton - Losing Today

"Album Review (SPIN): 'Numbered Days'"

The Meeting Places achieve iridescent ambience on Numbered Days, dreaming up expansive atmospherics and silver-lined lyrics.
