    MC Rut are riveting, the rawness and intensity of their performance drenched in the pints of sweat they undoubtedly shed at every show.[Nov 2010, p.116]

    It's been a long wait for this, their debut album, but it's well worth it. [20 Nov 2010, p.51]

    Middle Class Rut have crafted a solid release that, while unlikely to set the world on fire, nonetheless makes for an impressive debut.

    While it may have been captured through a somewhat disjointed creative process, though, there's no sense of No Name No Color lacking cohesion.
  5. Dec 15, 2010
    Considering No Name... is compiled from several years of writing between kinetic hard touring, the coherency on display is impressive, as is the volume pumped out by a mere brace of noisy souls.
  6. Dec 15, 2010
    While it's admirable that they're supporting indie label Bright Antenna, their songs run like sold-out singles with all the real hooks replaced with lesser ones. The annoying screaming that Lopez completely misuses comes off manufactured and whiny.

    A beautiful display of raw emotion and riffs that will stick with you. While it may not overwhelm, it keeps you coming back for more andA beautiful display of raw emotion and riffs that will stick with you. While it may not overwhelm, it keeps you coming back for more and enjoying every minute of it. New Low - the single I'm sure that lead you to listening or at least wanting to is a good indication of what's in store. It offers a quiet restrain not seen everywhere on the album, but is a welcome intrusion from the norm. Busy Bein' Born and Lifelong Dayshift offer wonderful riffs and great vocals that make you want to back with them. The highlight is the final track Cornbread. Melodic, odd, neurotic and beautiful - worth the price of the album. A band somewhere between Death From Above 1979, Pearl Jam and Chevelle, if you're in for an album dripping with angst and the fear of not knowing where to go or what to do next and the beats and chords to go with it - check this one out.
