"Of all the albums I've heard since the Power Pop renaissance, "1301 Highland Avenue" captures the magic of '70s AM Radio as well as any. Awesome hooks which repeat (a lost art) and engaging lead vocals, it's an album which will stay in your head long after the record has stopped."--David Bash, pop music journalist and founder/CEO: The International Pop Overthrow Festival
