I’m pretty sure that Kircher’s nasal vocals are accompanied by an “I’m cooler than you” sneer, but he might have a point, because this is a very good album. - exclaim


Powerful jet blasts of post-punk …the result is explosively catchy… If you're up for some post-punked indie rock, you can't go wrong with Sarah Veladora… a fantastically inventive style - indieville.com


Music that is catchy without being condescending, ethereal without being esoteric... Each song on Sarah Veladora is a gem... this is the rock and roll of the future." - Clamor


...One of the most refreshing stabs at indie alt-pop rock we have heard in a long time here, Very Highly Recommended." - notlame.com


If you like the Strokes or Interpol, I think you might find this a much better album than either of those" - indiespinzone.com

It is the strength of the songwriting that gives this disc a hearty thumbs up… the music might remind you of bands like XTC or Echo and the Bunnymen …the tunes will stick in your head, and that's okay by me. - nyrock.com


Dark and haunting. Moody yet melodic… They remind me of a happier Cure that makes out with the members of PJ Harvey and Dinosaur Jr. - smother.net


They've got all the Bowieisms and Lou Reedisms down. The songs are well crafted and thoughtful and there are actually no throw away tracks… Fans of The Jesus & Mary Chain and Dinosaur Jr. should be pretty happy with this, and it's cool that albums like this are still being made. - sponicsizne.com


Canada keeps producing quality artists, but here's one that doesn't sound like Nickelback! Sprawl sounds much more like The Flaming Lips, if Placebo's Brian Molko joined and they all listened to considerable amounts of The Cure. That sort of means it's post-punk with a heavy dose of British pop influence and a keen focus on song construction… Definitely worth a listen - voxonline.com
