Four Stars - Alternative Press, March 2007
"Standout 'Movies of Antartica' is a desolate stadium anthem that echoes Radiohead and Coldplay." - Billboard, January 2007
"The Portland trio, whose shoegazer sound is a dreamy mix of keyboards, electronic samples, chiming guitar and throbbing bass lines.a further dip into this impressive debut reveals some expansive rock songs that deserve to be heard on the big stage."

-- VH1.com - Must Hear Albums, January 3rd, 2007
"Centuries Before Love and War is good enough to scare the Postal Service gang back into the studio." – The Boston Globe, January 2007
"Stars of Track and Field are masterminds of atmospherics…The group’s lushly crafted alt-rock aims high-for the arena rafters, even-but in a way that is smart and indie-minded." - The Denver Post, January 2007
"A little bit poppy, a little bit electronic, a little bit dreamy. All together amazing." - NY Post's Best Songs to Download from 2006, December 19th, 2006

".the results are quite stunning, as Centuries Before Love and War, a follow-up to their self-produced debut EP, You Came Here for Sunset Last Year, proves.What hasn't changed is the Stars' glimmering, gloomy, shimmering, shambling style, but the electronics allow them to vastly expand their musical palette, add a plethora of shadings and textures to their songs, and evoke rock's rich past." -- Jo-Ann Greene, All Music Guide / Billboard Magazine

".you will not want to miss your chance to meet your new favorite band, especially if you're a fan of the beautiful, emotionally fractured and deftly dynamic sound of Disintegration-era Cure or pre-major label Wheat. " -- Nashville Rage, August 2006

".a stunning and desolate beauty to Stars of Track and Field's debut album. The crestfallen vocals of singer Kevin Calaba backed by lonely synths and hushed electronica conflate into one big murky sparkle, giving the album a dark and stirring sheen." -- Amplifier Magazine

".digital beats with a little bit of guitar rock. At times one aspect of the band overpowers the others - breaking through the sound we had just gotten used to." -- Gothamist
