    The reference points suggest Cerebral Ballzy care little for innovation, but they've nevertheless created the best US punk debut for some time. [Sept. 2011, p. 98]

    They trash out a slew of throwaway instant classics and refresh a well-worn format for no better motive than the fact that they can. [30 Jul 2011, p.51]

    It's the perfect companion piece to last year's masterful OFF! Blast, The First Four EPs. Hardcore lives!

    He sounds like a chaos orchestrator--the sound of his voice alone can get people moving in the wrong direction--and he's the best part of this adrenalized fecklessness.

    Produced by The Bronx's Joby J Ford--who has also worked with Californian hardcore punks Trash Talk, whose MO is much the same as Cerebral Ballzy's--this eponymous set does a good job of transporting the band's ferocious live show into one's living room.

    ADHD-powered hardcore New York punk. [Sept. 2011, p. 104]

    The songs are trite punk workouts without any real imagination and, whilst there's a reasonable amount of endeavour and vigour, they're unlikely to raise anything other than idle curiosity amongst the curious idle.
