"Quite simply, he knows how to tell the story of his Philadelphia through songs. Sweeney and his cohorts excel at playing fun music, and very visibly having fun while doing it, but you can say the same about any number of artists. What makes Sweeney stand out is his skill, not just as a scene setter, but a narrator. As much as his music reveres the past, his words intensely study the now, consider the future, and accept the inevitability of change — something that all of us could stand to be a little better with." - John Vettese, WXPN's The Key

“[Sweeney] mixes autobiography and fiction against the group’s 70s-inflected indie pop, resourceful— and unabashed— enough to digress into an E Street interlude or an AM-rock guitar coda.” - Pitchfork

"The riotous new LP from Joey Sweeney is full of jagged-edged, bristling Americana." - Bandcamp Daily
