"Winnipeg's Boats! sound as if the disc on which their music was recorded can hardly contains their kinetically creative firestorm...Intercontinental Champion hits like that morning caffeine rush and pummels you into submission with its kooky, over-the-top hooks." -- Winnipeg Free Press

"Every track is solid and, most importantly, memorable, which has as much to do with Klachefsky's songwriting as it does with his surprisingly high vocals" -- Now Magazine

"Boats! Intercontinental Champion gives an atomic leg drop to Canada's indie scene and is bound to hailed as one of this year's best." -- Pop Journalism (4 out of 5 stars) "This is such a solid indie pop record, it's hard to believe that it's a debut...a sparkling, hook-laden record sprinkled with plenty of handclaps and sing-a-long chorus lines." -- Uptown Magazine (Rated: A)

"The Arcade Fire minus the drama. An album that sparkles and shines with every single song, and it is all fun without corny and majestic without being melodramatic. My favourite unsung record this past year." --Dave Ullrich, Zunior.com

"It's hard to eat it all up and not ask for seconds... a great Winnipeg pop masterpiece." -- Stylus Magazine
