0.0 Eli Kleman EMERITUS | May 9th 11

This is simply a really excellent post-rock album, featuring the same stuff that made their 2009 effort such a treat. They've retained their ability to pack into five minutes what some bands can barely do with ten. It's beautiful, sweeping, and gracefully executed, all while refraining from becoming to bloated with filler or mellow-dramatic movements. Without a doubt a 2011 standout.

this is beautiful, especially when it gets all twinkly for a little, stops, then goes brrrrnnnerrr neerrneerrrneerrr, dooo doo doooo, da da dummmmm! not sure if it's better than Mogwai yet but it's definitely up there as far as 2011 post-rock is concerned.

3.5 greatDarkNoctus CONTRIBUTOR | May 9th 11

This is a good album but there's nothing spectacular about this and it all adds up into an unremarkable (though admittedly enjoyable) experience.

4.0 excellentTravis Montgomery | March 3rd 13

Another exemplary album from Maybeshewill. Energetic and majestic; Serene and Bombastic. 3.9/5

0.0 Wreath | April 20th 12

This album basically cuts the bullshit, delivering catchy 4-minute tracks in which strikingly simple yet powerful melodies and passages proves that interesting post rock isn't about how much stuff you put into one song - it's about what you put into them and how you piece it together.

4.0 excellentMike Allen | December 14th 11

I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone is not exactly a complete shift in direction for Maybeshewill, but is evidence that the post-rockers are evolving in terms of musicianship and diversity. The haziness of the message is what prevents the record from reaching an astronomical level however, as I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone does not pack the same poignant punch as Sing the Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony or even Not For Want of Trying. Maybeshewill’s preceding releases were successful in the fact that the inspiration and sincerity was apparent, but with I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone, this is left open to debate. Regardless, Maybeshewill has made an elaborate statement with their third record, even if one thing remains true: Maybeshewill is post-rock without the bullshit.

I like the part where the piano plays sixteenth notes and triplets underneath building guitar chords and SUPER EPIC crash symbols.

4.0 excellentJacob Royal STAFF | September 4th 11

Abbreviated, condensed post-rock, done in such a manner as to not lose its importance, is exactly what Maybeshewill have created here. In fact, the brief nature of this album works for the better, as there aren't draining transitions, like that of many other critically acclaimed post-rock albums. And every moment on this album feels essential, because the different parts of the album complement each other incredibly well, an fine example being the transition between "Opening" and "Take This to Heart". It'll be very hard for other musicians to top this one for 2011.

4.5 superbFatalEnigma | June 18th 11

Although the album lacks any kind of dialogue which played a big part in their previous two albums, this newest release contains some of the best stuff maybeshewill have ever written
