"With a palette of influences ranging from early U2, Sonic Youth, Savage Republic, and The Cure, The Duration play with galloping energy and tightly wound emotional content that only occasionally burst into full-fledged chaos. While in L.A., Kurt Amelang has developed into a first-class drummer, making use of his entire kit to construct complex and novel underpinnings for Nico's pointed, exacting guitar work. Mike Capritta has also gotten comfortable on the bass (which he has just learned to play), countering the busy nature of Nico's playing with timely sustained notes, that make smooth the band's frequent weight-shifts and tempo changes within songs that reflect a sense of constant motion and dissociation of place, consistent with an tumultuous stay in an unfamiliar city.''
