    Endless Boogie isolate the kind of grinding blues rock riffs you'd hear on AC/DC, Canned Heat or early Beefheart records and cane them relentlessly. [Apr 2013, p.100]

    Long Island may be their heaviest album--some songs introduce enough distortion to qualify as Stoner Metal in the vein of Fu Manchu or Nebula, But for the most part, they do exactly what their name says, grinding along like 1975 will never come. [Feb 2013, p.50]

    Throughout the mammoth album, barely a minute is wasted as Endless Boogie superimpose wild guitars on even wilder ones. [Mar 2013, p.78]

    Endless Boogie justify indulgence via countless glorious shut-eye air guitar moments that nod to the Groundhogs, Canned Heat, the Stones at their tuffest.

    Endless Boogie can't help sounding like hip rare-vinyl freaks. But it's a gag with legs--and hypnotic force.

    What Long Island captures is the warm sound of the room in full flow--it's a live album, really, recorded in a studio but improvised on the spot.

    As Long Island is the most attractive and consistent Boog release to date, it is still a difficult proposition to say “hey, this band is for you.”

    Long Island probably isn't going to win any new fans for Endless Boogie, but their strengths are on display regardless.
