"An infectiously joyous journey." —89.3 The Current (10 Notable Minnesota Albums of 2018)

"Draws forth an underground punk spirit with infectious power pop roots to make you reminisce back on the simplicity of your carefree teenage days." —ANON Magazine

"Instant playlist fodder." —The Alternative

"Air Supply paints a vivid picture of freedom that comes with doing new things that are often outside of someone's comfort zone . . . a celebration of being alive, a two-minute party that makes a remarkable impact." —The Grey Estates

"A plywood rocket flying thru the purple roof of a house in a 90’s cartoon." —Small Albums

"A sugar rush of jubilant summer rowdiness . . . a razor sharp sound that is as precise as it is fun. Don't believe me? Pop this in your car and just try not to feel a pang for happy carefree adventures in the sun. Can't be done." —Houdini Mansions

"A refreshing reminder of the band’s grooving, spirited sound. The energized, vibrant production rings in your ears and is a call to arms, in a way, about living life to the fullest." —Sounding Board

"A sharp riffed affair with raucous layered vocals and close to the heart lyrics." —Diamond Deposits
