    SELECTED LINE: Say Anything’s potential swan song is as lyrically engaging and expansive as fans have come to love, and there’s plenty of musically structured throwbacks to the rawer Say Anything of old on this album. -Wall of Sound

The overarching plot makes it a real album.

There’s an aloofness and an impenetrability that makes this a tough listen regardless.

If this is the last we hear of Say Anything, then it certainly hasn’t disappointed.

DEAD PRESS! DEAD PRESS!

A profoundly human listen, which sees the band bow out proudly, for now at least.

DIY Magazine DIY Magazine

Oliver Appropriate, with its clap-along drumming patterns and stripped-back production, sounds like an elder statesman of emo gathering his fellow washed up frontmen around a campfire for a story or two.

While the future is open wide and we may meet Bemis again, Oliver Appropriate is the full circle send-off for a band that has always laid their heart on the line in the name of their craft.

For a band that has lived by its own rules for the past two decades, ‘Oliver Appropriate’ is a fittingly bold and uncompromising conclusion to this chapter in Bemis' career.

Upset (UK) Upset (UK)

Oliver Appropriate contains some the band’s most ambitious songs—perhaps closing out the band’s two-decade run.

RIFF Magazine RIFF Magazine

It ends the story which began with their acclaimed …Is A Real Boy album, and simultaneously closes the door on the band for now.

Everything Is Noise Everything Is Noise

Oliver Appropriate’s merits are overshadowed by the fact that it is supposed to be a sequel to one of Say Anything’s most successful albums.

Say Anything’s potential swan song is as lyrically engaging and expansive as fans have come to love, and there’s plenty of musically structured throwbacks to the rawer Say Anything of old on this album.
