 “Stop rubbernecking '90s nostalgia, and dig a fresh crop of wiry guitars, zany vocals, and butt-­‐moving sass.” “The fact that these guys can reunite and crank out strong material that’s just as relevant now as it was then is a solid testament to their craft.” “From the first riveting notes of “Rattler’s Revival,” the track that opens the Toadies’ new album, one thing is blatantly clear: The Fort Worth band came to rock — hard. This is a rocking roller coaster ride, all sweeping speed and sexy curves.” “Howls, thunderous guitars and stylish menace – the Toadies bring it all on Play.Rock.Music., which wisely leaves listeners wanting more.” “Who wants Toadies to change? Communists–that’s who.” “The Toadies could probably rock out well into their 70s and not lose the unmistakable whiff of rock ‘n’ roll passion and energy that makes their best songs endure, the guys repeatedly snatch victory from the jaws of irrelevance.” “When it comes to twitchy, psychotic rock, Toadies remain the band to beat.” “They can still hold their own when it comes to the classic tunes that put them on the map, but they’re also making a big splash in the world of rock ‘n’ roll with what they’re doing in this millennium.” “However, Play.Rock.Music. is smart, diverse and fired-­‐up – perhaps even more so than when the Toadies grabbed attention with songs such as “Possum Kingdom” and “Tyler” almost 20 years ago.” “Play.Rock.Music. It is unmistakably Toadies: creepy-­‐sexy lyrics, guitars like chainsaws, crunchy hooks. No complaints here.” “Toadies reclaim their ‘kingdom’ with No Deliverance, a bold mix of post-­‐grunge aggression and spicy Texas roadhouse flair.” “No Deliverance: It’s got riffs aplenty and surges with just as much energy, darkness and heaviness as their early stuff, and the title track is a monster.” “Raw, sleazy bluesy howls with a more laid-­‐back rhythmic drawl and hip-­‐shaking altrock hooks.” “Because the music can’t easily be lumped into any one popular genre – too ornery for post-­‐grunge, too streamlined for alt-­‐metal, too muscular for indie-­‐rock – Feeler’s spiky guitars and tight rhythm section keep you on your toes, the vicious melodies as unpredictable as the lyrics.”
