Throughout all of life’s ups and downs, two things have always held true for these four, their music and friendship. It’s the sounds, ideas, and emotions that they create when they are in a room together, and that is what this album is all about. "Mean Creek flood small rooms with a sound large enough to drown stadiums: monumental, rolling guitars, a driving, subterranean rhythm section, and a visceral impact like a shot to the gut. Their new tracks are their most involving to date. It is that Cobain-evoking scream on "The Comedian" and the discordant guitar dive in the solo from "Liar/Thief" that place Mean Creek among their grungier forebears of decades past while reserving for them a relevant spot among the new." -THE BOSTON PHOENIX "There is an obvious reason why Mean Creek was just named "Best Boston Act" by the Boston Phoenix.
They play their music with such emotion that you can't help but delve deep into the melodies and lyrical meanings behind each song. It's hard not to get sucked into the incredible sound of their melodies, and they do it yet again with their newest single "The Land of Hopes and Dreams." - FILTER MAGAZINE "Boston, Mass. has home to some of rock's most iconic and influential bands, but it's been a while since the historic city has seen an indie group like Mean Creek. Alternating boy-girl vocalists Chris Keene and Aurore Ounjian conjure a Pixies-like dual frontperson mystique and they rock equally as hard as their Beantown alma mater." -AOL SPINNER Read more on Last.fm.
