“If the Merseyside 5 piece can build on the foundations that this track (The Answer) has laid down for them then they have a BIG future just around the corner, just around the bend.” – Emerging North
“The Answer is a slice of Time, an element of elegant cool and one that is not to be missed, a song of subtle quality wrapped up in levels of boyish charm and one that rocks with craft and poise.” – Liverpool Sound and Vision
“‘The Answer’ is an upbeat track with folky influences and a catchy hook, which after just one listen will get stuck in your head.” – Liverpool Noise
