  1. It's a record of favorites, but not one where you feel compelled to skip songs to get to them.

    It’s a record that is absolutely free of fat and filler, brimming with the gusto and brattiness of their predecessors, and grounded on tight and in-the-pocket musicianship.

    Broadway calls wield a melodic, snotty jubilance that recalls Nimrod-era Green Day--filling an oddly vacant niche for present-day pop-punk. [Mar 2013, p.88]

    Comfort/Distraction is a good album that shows off how well Broadway Calls understand how to make pop-punk, but it's hard to shake the feeling that the band are pulling its punches in the name of wider appeal.
