"Debut album from this hard rock/power-pop trio from Champaign, Illinois. 12 tracks of heavy hook-rock that seldom holds back. Refreshing vigor and nice sampling on track 7, "The Better Angles of Our Nature", where the band's making fun of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal and the sly and sometimes comical maneuverings of politicians in general. Good, good instrumental riffs too.

"If Dillon Fence had the lead singer from Rocket From the Crypt then it would sound a little like this. Fairly powerful for a 3 piece rock act."

"File under power-pop/alterna-rock, but it's an interesting
departure from the recent spate of post-grunge and emocore clones shooting for airplay within a tired whiny-boy "I'm so sensitive" genre. CO2 rocks, and does so with some new sounds."

"Local singer and former guitarist of Crayon Rubbings teams up with the rhythm section from Animator. These long-time locals are gearing up for a CD release for '98. Meanwhile, their demos are slick and on the money."
