Excellently ominous and highly creative.. it's a skin-crawling, subtly menacing mash" Jack Rabid, Big Takeover
"An Extremely enticing mix that recalls the Doors-ie side of Television. A rhythmic, eccentric, and almost jazz-like adventure." T Broun, Stupefaction
"Talking Songs weilds it's perspective like a cudgel of lived-in wisdom with which you'll be undyingly (ha!) grateful to have been struck... An album that's as fearlessly outre as it is vibrantly soulful, and you can't get much more post-punk than that. CITC score 91%" Dave Cantrell, Caught in the Carousel
