"This trio''s debut full-length "Have Cake" is as bold an opening salvo as we have heard thus far this year by a local outfit. On it, the band builds every song slowly, starting with a wandering guitar line, a softhearted bit of piano or a bit of electronic ornamentation. From there, layers of rhythm and melody creep in, creating something akin to crème brulée: music with a hard, easily punctured art rock crust that reveals the gooey heart of a pop band underneath." - Robert Ham / The Oregonian
"It''s an immaculately constructed collection of arty mood-rock, with big ambitions and sweeping arrangements." - Ned Lannamann / Portland Mercury
"Have Cake is anything but a rich, moist piece of sugar-frosted fluff. It''s got at least as much weird as the band''s home base of Portland takes pride in. But Symmetry/Symmetry doesn''t go weird without good reason, and Have Cake is a refreshing melodic experiment in an age of so much noisy, overindulgent rock." - Seattle Weekly
"the album is one slick piece of machinery." - Shane Danaher / Willamette Week
"that guitar riff in "Same Flight" is absolutely retarded! I was just listening with Grant who works here and a direct quote was "It makes my head hurt"." - Keith Lacock / Tinderbox Music
"The band symmetry/ symmetry makes lovely, complicated, progressive rock. Take, for example, "Wedding Song," perhaps my favorite track off the band''s new album, "Have Cake." It begins with a lyrical piano and melancholy lyrics and slowly but surely ramps up to a sonically heartbreaking climax." - Kelly Brown / Statesman Journal
