"At its best, 'Bad Breaks' is dangerously sexy grooves, precise playing, and a naively weary narrator caught between glimpses of love and waves of stultifying heat." — James Courtney, "San Antonio Current"
"Indie-rock that pretty much ignores categories while drawing from pop, jazz, straight-up rock and combinations thereof. Songs including 'Victoria,' 'Won't Come Home' and 'Red Lips' are clever and catchy and prove Kerr has done a fine job of nurturing his musical baby." — Jim Beal Jr., "San Antonio Express-News"
"'Chapter and Verse' features a simple electric-keys riff that the San Anto outfit uses as a vehicle to shred. There's brutal, honest emotion latent in the lyrics ('I don't want to hear the words you carefully rehearsed/ Still you give them to me chapter and verse') that the band reflects in their visceral approach towards the song's ending, when all lets loose into one of the heaviest highlights of the album." — KRTU 91.7 FM Indie Overnight Blog
