Entertainment Weekly - p.135"[I]t's polished, radio-friendly pop. Longtime collaborator Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy produced half of the disc's 14 songs, anchoring it with guitar-driven tracks that cater to GCH's core fans."
Alternative Press - p.1624.5 stars out of 5 -- "Every song has an insistent hook, but despite the high-profile hip-hop guests, nothing feels calculated."
Blender (Magazine) - p.793 stars out of 5 -- "Gym Class Heroes can approximate the ecstatic pop of the Jackson 5 as naturally as if they were dancing to 'ABC,' and they skillfully pilfer reggae and pop punk, too."

The follow-up to Gym Class Heroes' breakthrough album, AS CRUEL AS SCHOOL CHILDREN, 2008's THE QUILT furthers the upstate New York ensemble's rap-rock sound. Not surprisingly, Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump, a frequent band associate, has his hand in the proceedings, producing half of the album, while hip-hop gurus Cool & Dre helm many of the other tracks. Highlights of the energetic outing include the playful "Cookie Jar" (featuring The-Dream) and the romantic "Live Forever (Fly With Me)," which makes great use of guest Daryl Hall's falsetto vocals.
