Played through top to bottom, Floods + Fires is a great album.
— Now on Tour
Gatsby’s forte is the same as Superchunk’s: riff-driven songs with unconventional melodies that don’t seem like they should be catchy — but somehow are. It’s a much easier trick to describe than to pull off, and Gatsby does better at it than most.
— Pathetic Caverns
5th best New England CD of 2005
— Worcester Magazine
Gatsby have the great American indie-guitar rock album on their hands.
— Big Takeover
Nothing could prepare you for Floods + Fires. Gatsby have been likened to Hüsker Dü, Heatmiser, Guided by Voices, The Feelies and Das Damen, and here, at last, you’ll get the impression that they’ve earned the comparisons.
