“…These boys ain’t right in the head, not by a Long shot. That’s just one of the reasons they’re so damn good. Their live performances are nothing less than electrifying.”Scott Hopkins/Music Fest News

“Opposite Box, [who] has always been a controlled explosion on stage, still keeps that improvisational feel while adding funk and jazz to the mix.” – Dave Weinthal/Enigma
