AllMusic [2]

Jon O’Brien from AllMusic called Rain on the Humming Wire “a bolder, more confident sound that proves the time away hasn’t hampered their ability to create an indie rock anthem or two. Written in Manchester and recorded in Woodstock with producer John O’Mahony, its 11 tracks show traces of their globetrotting past, from the grandiose reverb-soaked Americana of ‘One Way Street’ to the lilting orchestral pop of ‘Not Quite a Home’, to the Fleetwood Mac-esque West Coast soft rock of ‘Creatures’, all of which reveal that frontman Jae Laffer‘s husky Bob Dylan-esque vocals remain as potent as ever.” O’Brien concluded the review saying “Overall, Rain on the Humming Wire is the sound of a band whose members are no longer panicking but are confidently looking forward to swapping theaters for stadiums.”[2]

Beat Magazine said “The influence of being away from home is evident in Laffer’s song writing. Like all [of] The Panics albums, Rain On The Humming Wire is reflective, intimate and human, but, there’s an extra twinge of loneliness and frustration that Laffer blames on dislocation.” They continued saying “‘Not Quite At Home’ exemplifies the influence of dislocation on The Panic’s music; descriptive, moving and musically orchestral, it illustrates the feelings of isolation that often accompany homesickness – something the band all experienced while overseas.”[8]

A JB HiFi reviewer called it “their most dynamic and electric album [and also] their most tender and poetic.”[1]
