  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    12 is a solid reminder that they've been pretty together all these years, as well as an ideal starting point should you feel like revisiting the albums you may have missed

  3. 8.0 |   All Music

    It's rare enough for an act like Sloan to endure, but it's even rarer for them to maintain a level of quality as strong as these guys; 12 proves that they refuse to simply tread water, and it's smart, heartfelt music from an uncommonly great band

  4. 7.8 |   Paste Magazine

    At this point, Sloan does indeed feel like an essential service: something we take for granted, like electrical power, paved streets or curbside recycling. Thanks to 12, then, for reminding us of their considerable skill in addition to their longevity

  5. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    Even if 12 has its share of flaws, Sloan still manage to write one of their most proficient set of songs since 2008's faintly more exploratory Parallel Play

  6. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Less ambitious than their previous album, Sloan's 12 gets back to basics with mixed results

  7. 6.0 |   Uncut

    The distinction between their sensibilities remain strikingly apparent. Print edition only
