    Their first release in nearly 5 years, recorded by Drew Vandenberg of 429 Records, the double album falls nothing short of chronicling the American band’s journey through stardom providing food for thought on the ups and downs of Nor and So California living in general, and rivals their 1992 self-titled release for best in class.

    Berkeley To Bakersfield is the perfect shotgun rider for any road trip. With the breadth of its variety no other music passengers need be invited along for the ride.

    A cutting, driving, defiantly hook-happy set (mostly) focused on survival amid America's income-inequality nightmare. [Feb 2015, p.75]

    Whilst Berkeley has an obvious theme, there’s a feeling of movement and diversity on the album, and the ideas are put forward in such a way as to make this album relevant to modern life and not just California.... Bakersfield takes on an altogether different style again; we’re headed to the country, and it’s entirely understandable why these songs were grouped and recorded separately.
