"I don't think I've rocked harder to any record out of Chicago this year." "This disc rocked my world all week." -Richard Milne, Local Anesthetic, WXRT
"King Sparrow is quite possibly the best rock 'n' roll band in Chicago."
-Frank Krolicki, Windy City Rock
"This is definitely how Chicago should sound." -Billy Ocean, Radio One Chicago, WLUW
"...And an impressive debut [record] it is, improving on the group's earlier EP in nearly every way imaginable. The trio's shaggy garage rock has a natural swing and swagger, whether they're surveying the remains of a shattered relationship (a riff-laden "The Wreckage") or trying to find a way to break free from the 9-to-5 grind (an incessant ‘Conveyor Belt’)”. -Chicago Tribune
"Rooted in an epic garage rock sound, King Sparrow is pop-y enough for toe tapping, but has just the right roughness around the edges. Add some blues to this mix and you've got yourself some hells yeah music." -Gapers Block
"The album is filled with great lyrics, inventive instrumentation, and layers of warmth and energy."
-The Deli Magazine
"...a very impressive album filled with a tight, captivating sound electric with raw energy."
-Britni Day, Loud Loop Press
"Following up an a strong EP called “Derailer,” the Chicago trio King Sparrow, one of the most melodic garage bands to climb out of the grungy murk in some time, will celebrate the release of its first full album tonight at Schubas." -Jim DeRogatis
