'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 HAVE CAKE was self-produced and self-released.
