"Finn’s lyrics mix the frankness of drunken confession with the literary allusions and skillful character development of someone who has read a million books on the college quad. His songs are full of hood rats and saints, and his lyrics find beauty in back alleys and outcasts." - Slate
"But "Capable of Anything" feels like a 5-Hour Energy drink on tightly wound strings — the arrangement is brilliant, with yMusic performing in deft ways where guitars and bass might fall into mediocrity and cliche." – NPR Music
“the band has grown into a powerhouse live extravaganza, with stampeding horns, a raging harmonica, flaring guitars and Kincheloe belting her heart out on songs that border rock, folk, Jazz and funk.” - Glide
"Mr. Hansard is at his best live. His voice is elastic and strong, a many-timbre instrument, and he uses them all, from a clear tenor to an anguished, grungy roar. He commits himself to every song with a scary intensity, draping the melody almost recklessly over the driving rhythm from his right hand. He accents that rhythm by hammering the stage with his right foot." - NY Times
