  1. Fans of grunge, hard rock, and various types of metal will find a lot to like about these songs. Ladyfinger (ne) blend elements carefully and in such a way as to avoid kitsch.
  2. Mojo
    The Nebraskans' second LP strikes a meaty accord between classic rock swagger and the pumped up, get-in-the-van intensity of hardcore. [Apr 2009, p.107]
  3. With the new album, though, both the band and Bayles have found a comfortable middle ground, the band delivering far more dynamic songwriting without betraying the visceral power of the arrangements, the producer adding a more subtle touch from time to time.
  4. Alternative Press
    Ladyfinger (ne)'s second disc finds a sweet spot within the jagged, mathematical riffs to hide wellsprings of melody and harmony. [Apr 2009, p.132]
  5. While it’s very good hard rock and there are the little differences, the overall sound of the album is largely the same.
  6. Ladyfinger (ne) are obviously a talented bunch, but they're trying to crack open the rock'n'roll firmament with ball-peen hammers, chiseling grooves without making any real breakthroughs.
