Jersey Beat – Dec, 2011
“Sailed Blanks finds Shy Mirrors fully committed to a combination of muscle and pop sensibility.” “the band pushes its sonic boundaries, raging with authentic aggression. Shy Mirrors has snuck in a radiant release just under the wire of 2011.”

Big Takeover #69 – Nov, 2011
“Shy Mirrors hollers hot, quick-hitting, indie rock with heavier 1977-1981 punk guitars, like The Rich Kids on double the amphetamines covering Negative Trend. Give them two-minutes 11 times, and they’ll bang out a big blast of babyfaced energy with pop hooks like the breakout “Breakout,” or the Ramones-ish “Argon” (beat on this, brats!), that will blitzkrieg your bop in nothing flat.” – Jack Rabid

Wilfully Obscure – Nov, 2011
“Two minute songs, a total blast, and an out-an-out winner.” “Sailed Blanks is perhaps the finest LP of 2011’s late-breaking releases.”
