  1. Hey Everyone! manages to occupy a space all of its own--an achievement in itself.
  2. Dananananaykroyd are, on this album's evidence, a fine band.
  3. In its own combustive way, it's weirdly memorable.
  4. Dananan’s first album proper suffers from the same problems as Los Campesinos!’ flawed debut; ‘Black Wax’ and ‘Pink Sabbath’ are both thrilling, if wonky, pop songs, but they could be appreciated more fully as singles rather than back to back.
  5. If all that this still-decent album does is pique interest in what Dananananaykroyd are like live, then it will have done its job because that is where the magic lies.

    Driven by two drummers they owe much to the styles of Fucked Up, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Torche, but on 'Black Wax' they apply the brakes, revealing a surprising amount of melodic, colle-rock bounce. [May 2009, p.82]
  7. While there is plenty here that's impressive, the odd change of gear wouldn't go amiss next time around. [May 2009, p.110]
  8. Everyone will find something appealing about Dananananaykroyd, no matter how small, but it’s difficult to imagine anyone truly loving this record, regardless of whether they judge it by its cover.

    Full of agressive songs. Its really 'in your face' and I've enjoyed listening to it.
    My picks for the album are 'Pink Sabbath', 'Black Wax',
    'Totally Bone' and 'Hey James'. Full Review »
