  1. The music has a peppy vitality, and a slightly cleaner sound than the Vivians, and is engagingly endearing on its own merits.
  2. Introducing is strong enough to qualify Brilliant Colors as one of those bands to keep an eye on.
  3. Introducing Brilliant Colors doesn’t go so far as to challenge this tradition, but it throws in enough wrenches to make it an exciting addition to the catalog.
  4. It is an alluring collection that hints at greatness but halts at achieving it, instead teasing listeners for its sequel.
  5. Brilliant Colors understand to stick to what you know, and keep it short and sweet--a couple of platitudes that serve this band well.
  6. The all-female group's full-length Slumberland bow rarely bests similar DIY bands (Miko, Vivian Girls) [Holiday 2009, p.80]
  7. In time-honoured, do-it-yourself fashion, their debut Introducing breathlessly races through 10 buzzy tracks in a shade over 23 minutes, by which time they've long since run out of puff. [Feb 2010, p. 112]
  8. The girls are solid musicians, and they’ve structured their little songs well enough. The record is pretty short too, clocking in at 24 minutes, which is good, because I was bored already at the 15 minute mark.
