“… a swath of British Invasion verve, an effortless blend moving with a catchy rock swagger that’s infectious enough to require Cipro.” — Chris Parker, Philadelphia Weekly
“Smash Palace, a powerpop/ rock band with a 28 year pedigree still has the spirit and exuberance necessary for this tough to pull off style. Nice story in persistence too.” — Ken Barnes, USA Today
“The lions share of the credit goes to the Butler brothers’ razor sharp songwriting skills, particularly their ability to meld soaring pop melodies to clever (yet never cloying) lyrics.” — Rick Schadelbauer, Amplifier Magazine
