“What a way to come back from a breakup; this album is simply amazing in the way they mix their Americana roots with influence from pop and more upbeat rhythms.” — WRFL (Lexington, KY)
“This new iteration of Pike 27 is a powerhouse of scorching guitar, earth-moving bass and jackhammer drumming, and while there are vestiges of the band’s Roots Rock history, everyone’s balls are definitely within the vicinity of some wall or other and medal is being pedaled with controlled abandon.
Start to stop, Pike 27 careened from song to song with the visceral intensity of The Old 97s and dashes of Alejandro Escovedo and Grant Lee Buffalo at their delicately nuanced and head-kicked obvious best. This seems to be a fertile period for long dormant bands to renew themselves and that can always be a problematic situation, but Pike 27 is clear evidence that having the right motivation to return can evolve into a stunning and most welcomed result.”
