"We are a band that's like your record collection." Kevn Kinney
“Crunching hard rock is the drivin part, brittle countryish balladry the cryin, with the two linked by a heavy dose of Led Zeppelinphilia. If Paul westerberg had grown up worshiping Angus Young instead of Alex Chilton, The Replacements might have sounded something like this Atlanta band.”
Rolling Stone Magazine
