    A debut rich in raw potential.[Summer 2021, p.87]

    ‘BUMMER’ is a record made to be played hard and loud, heard blaring out of car windows and making cavalcades in faceless crowds.

    Some additional layers wouldn't hurt next time around, and perhaps some brighter, more varied production when the opportunity arises, but this is a solid, high-energy debut from a pair that definitely has their style figured out already, with lots of room to build.

    Not everything about ‘BUMMER’ is fully perfected just yet, but there’s plenty to feel upbeat about.

    BUMMER is an album where cleopatrick excel more than they struggle. Their sound could do with a little streamlining, but for a debut LP, this is a bold and at times very enjoyable effort.

After a few listens, the album only gets better and better. And the most important thing about their whole work is this irresistible kind of authenticity, which differentiates them from the other bands. Their music helps me to get through despair and makes me a better man. Getting to know about cleopatrick was one of the best things that ever happened in my life. I can't wait for their next release.

    I really enjoy these guys’ vibe. I often listen to all of the tracks in one breath. The album’s dope. NRM

Despite being an album of lots of similar feels but one of a kind. It is still listenable in one breath definitely energetic and can probably be approved by lots of different rock fans as it is uncountably a rock album. I also like the singularity of the artist in the album there is no one like him and cooperation may have proved that right and ruined the album. Keep up the good work! And at some point you will be noticed Expand

Their noisy, rough style is something to keep an eye on because they could potentially make something amazing! My favorite songs are Family Van, Good Grief, and Why July. But if I had to point out which one is my least favorite, I would've picked the song 2008. Because I found that song to be kind of boring, sluggish and trying to be emotional and dramatic, and I think that the song flopped because of it. Another tiny complaint I have is that I think that this album started strong but ended pretty weak. But overall, I think it's pretty good.
