REVIEWS OF BREACH
"Breach is a solid rock n’ roll album... The lyrics are clever and pointed, the music is rollicking good fun and the attitude is always spot-on sardonic."
-- Power of Pop (May 1)
"We have, at last count, nine trillion ... wanks punching retro pop-rock buttons, but Sam Page is one of the dozen who do it with style, humour and honesty. He's good. Sam Page is good."
-- Unpeeled (March)
"This entire CD is a roller coaster ride, sideways, upside down, inside out and then back again. ... [it] should have been called adrenaline, because it is riddled with it and keeps it flowing from beginning to end."
-- Skope (March 14)
"Overall, a very enjoyable album ... Great hooks, crunchy guitars, nice harmonies and often clever lyrics."
-- Power Population (March 7)
"Catchy as hell! ... With powerful guitar riffs, surreal melodies, and great vocals."
-- instantfilter (March 3)
"Sam Page delivers an album full of well-crafted songs, uber-catchy melodies, and plenty of devil-may-care bravado."
-- East Coast Music Scene (February 20)
"We heap tons of praise for the truly independent artists like Sam Page [who] pretty much write, play, fund and promote everything themselves ... `Breach`absolutely roasts in this particular ray of sunshine."
-- Mojophenia (February 18)
"Sam Page kicks ass... This is infectious and fun... Is it too early to post a candidate for one of the best albums of 2013?"
-- Berkeley Place (February 9)
"This is an album filled with catchy tunes that are very well done. If you like a singer-songwriter that can rock, check out this album."
-- Schwindy's Indie Music Spotlight (February 9)
"... made to an incredibly high standard in terms of both writing and execution. 90s alt-rock has its fingerprints all over Breach."
-- The Sound of Confusion (February 9)
"... pure inventive, highly melodic, guitar pop for now-ish people."
-- The Un-Herd Music (February 9)
"This is one performer with potential you cannot ignore, so check it out."
-- Power Popaholic (February 4)
"Very catchy alt-rock songs that will def[initely] get stuck in your head."
-- Gashouse Radio (February 4-10, featured artist)
"This album is worth checking out ... my album pick for February 2013."
-- KSSU The Blog (February 2)
"This album is a real sparkler from start to finish, pleasantly upbeat with plenty of guitar riffs and jangly guitars in abundance. If this fails to get you moving, then you must be dead!"
-- Ice Cream Man Power Pop (February 1)
"Breach sounds like the perfect album for summer, upbeat and packed with catchy guitar riffs. (...) Overall, this album is an enjoyable listen that doesn’t take itself too seriously."
-- the first song for your mixtape (January 27)
"It's that nostalgic 90's pop/rock sound that reminds me of past performers like Matthew Sweet, Cake and even a little bit of Cracker, but with an updated vibe that always seems to get my toes tapping."
-- Music That's Nu2Me (January 23)
