"Guitarist Cameron Stallones is a busy man. Following the migration of the members of Magic Lantern to disparate locales, Stallones began his highly productive solo project Sun Araw, and has been releasing a steady stream of wah-focused psychedelia." (Dusted Magazine)

"Get ready for some face-rockin’ psychedelic experimentation. Listening to the music of Magic Lantern reminds me, first, of the late 60s where blends of psychedelic pop, folk and rock dominated and freedom wasn’t just a hippie movement, but a trait occasionally incorporated into music ... Platoon is the sort of album you listen to in the dark while laying on the floor trying to pierce your gaze through the ceiling to see the clear night sky." (FensePost)

"Platoon marks the welcome return of Portland-dwelling psych explorers Magic Lantern, a band who count Sun Araw's Cameron Stallones amongst their number. Recorded and mixed by Best Coast member and Pocahaunted collaborator, Bobb Bruno, Platoon perfectly captures this band's distinctive approach to experimental, lo-fi rock, hurtling through exotic, dusty sounding organ passages and ravaged wah-wah sequences." (Boomkat)

"There are tons of dudes out there who would love Magic Lantern if only it were slipped into their drive-time classic rock radio. Platoon is an album bristling with the true spirit of rock ’n’ roll, succeeding not because it tries to reinvent or resurrect rock music, but simply because it is rock, smartly crafted and well played ..."
