"An impressive and precocious debut." (Pitchfork)

"Pop music has almost certainly never sounded more bizarre than it does in Gulag Orkestar, but it has also never sounded quite this good. Memorable hooks abound, Condon’s gorgeous voice never fails to impress, and his songs never get dull. Those in the market for something entirely different from the norm should pick up Beirut’s debut album." (Sputnik Music)

"The best album to come out of Albuquerque since the Shins decamped for the Pacific Northwest, the debut album by Beirut (aka New Mexico-born 19-year-old singer/songwriter Zach Condon) bears an immediate resemblance both to Denver's DeVotchKa and the current passions of the Athens, GA, crowd formerly associated with the Elephant 6 stable."
