"Stapled to Air is an alluring musical hybrid, blending jagged electric guitar shards and occasional blood curdling yelps with limber bass lines and swingin drum fills." -Rob Van Alstyne, Pulse of the Twin Cities 200
"Stapled to Air is simply a nine-song juggernaut of smart songwriting and poignant lyricism with a result so contemplative that it’s tough not to become completely involved in it." -Kyle Undem, 30 Music 2004
