Jessica Thomas of Renowned for Sound gave the album . out of 5, saying; "A major theme for this record is negative feelings that are inspired by draining relationships and these songs give Hoops an edge, they're dealing with the nitty gritty in such an appealing way. Tracks like "Hoops", "Switchblade", "Bitter End", "Cut Me Loose", "Battles" and "Hold Me Back" all deal with some quite serious subjects, with all of them stemming back to being hurt by someone (or something) that you once loved
Album · 2015 · 11 Songs. Listen on Apple Music. White-hot rock with soul to spare.
Written by Chelsea Deeley. The deep, stirring hum and pounding kick drum of Hallelujah pulse through my headphones and I can honestly say I’m pumped. Sitting on a packed out train in Sydney peak hour, I’m trying my darndest to do those subtle head-bobs and knee twitches that don’t disrupt my fellow sardined Sydney-siders. It’s an undoubtedly rousing impression to make for the first track off Hoops, the sophomore effort by Menangle’s golden sons The Rubens. Descriptions of this album as a timeless record can definitely be justified. All eleven tracks are thematically varied, and show the great range that they have within their own rock realm. But while it’s not an intricate, mountain-moving excursion, it will definitely satisfy those that wish for that ‘bluesy’/‘surfy’ rock gem that makes for great crowd fodder and rocking out mentally on a peak-hour train.
