Afraid of Heights is their most overtly political statement yet,

a highlight in the Billy Talent catalog and perhaps their best to date.” – All Music

Afraid of Heights is how a band should mature and progress: look no further than the album’s title track and its reprise to see the breadth of what they are capable of. This is the sound of a band that aren’t hindered by limitations of what they ‘should’ sound like.” – Alternative Press

“…a showcase of a band playing to it’s strengths…
This is Billy Talent doing what Billy Talent do best.” – Rocksound

“…firework riffs crisp careening rock anthems…” – Q Magazine
