A hook is a hook...but with Last Days Of April, it's an epic masterpiece. Inventive arrangements, bittersweet melodies, flawless instrumentation and the masterful production of Fireside's Pelle Gunnerfeldt give Angel Youth its hidden edge. Layers of strings and pianos surround songs examining the tender sting of relationships past. Receiving critical praise within indie rock circles worldwide, this record is nothing short of outstanding. Impossible to listen just once. "Nothing's Found" on Emo Diaries Three. (DER-401)
"Angle Youth has to be one of the greatest albums EVER. Produced by Fireside's Pelle Gunnerfeldt, Last Days Of April play some beautiful, searing college rock that made me feel like I did when I first heard Jimmy Eat World's Clarity. This album can be described as pure perfection and definitely a contender for album of the year. How albums like this manage to pass silently by the mainstream is beyond me. If you don't have this in your collection, it will look bare." - ExstreamRadio
"Angel Youth from Last Days Of April is an emotional meteor shower that flattens me to the ground with every song. Some say the best records are those that effect you so much, it hooks you before you realize what it sounds like. If that's the case, then Angel Youth is one of the most visceral, hit-you-in-the-heart-before-your-brain-reacts records in indie rock. I've stopped trying to pin this down critically; I'm just too shaken up by its pure melancholy to examine it logically. Angel Youth radiates with glimmering guitar licks, pain soaked singing and lyrics that make me miss my girlfriend even more. No one can deliver the kind of passionate personal hell Last Days Of April has created. A marvelous gem." - Lollipop
"On Angel Youth, Last Days Of April avoids the pitfalls of mediocrity through brilliant songwriting, sharp production, and the incorporation of numerous string instruments to give their sound a unique, spiritual quality. It's very rare when an isolated band can break new ground and become leaders in a movement whose major bands are thousands of miles away. This is an album you can listen to over and over again and still hear new instruments and stereo tricks on each listen. Catchy and inventive." - Skratch
"Angel Youth is a record that indie rock lovers will appreciate and make their own, as Last Days Of April plays a very delicate, yet punchy, post rock pop where a subtle musical layer is met with well calibrated vocals. The top notch production can only add to the already captivating personal lyrics and skilled musicianship. Great sounds, mixing keyboards with your indie structure of guitar and bass, overlaid by a singer that knows how to sing. A debut that is astonishing as it is brilliant. Last Days Of April is a name to watch. 10 out of 10!" - Dogprint
