We didn’t write the following stuff:

“Forget the boredom – inducing whine of Something for Kate, if you’re after guitar pop that leaves the pretension to the prima donnas look no further than singer/guitarist Tim Steward and his long serving partners in Screamfeeder” Blunt Magazine

“13 tunes-no filler and its ragged, infectious spirit evokes all kinds of glories: classic soul records, the early Who singles, the fire and fun of bands such as the Jam and the Replacements. Highlights are many but it’s hard to go past “I’ve Got The Knife’, one of the best tunes of the year, with its infectious melody and lyrics with just the right mixture of yearning, regret and hope.” Courier Mail

“Simplicity and fully formed tunes are the key ingredients, as well as lyrics which actually have something to say. Certainly few bands strike a creative high six or so albums into their, career but surely this one will win its due as one of the best Australian rock albums this year.” Courier Mail

“With attractive lyrics and placid keyboards being the main highlight, “Take You Apart” no doubt holds some of Screamfeeder’s best songs to date. Its diversity is cryptically intelligent, while Screamfeeder, as a band have refined immensely. Certainly the brightest release to come out of Brisbane this year, as you get the feeling that Screamfeeder are one of those bands who continue to get better with age.” Anemic Magazine “If ever the adage “all killer and no filler’ applied, it does with “Take You Apart’, one of the Australian albums of the year” Tsunami

“Their latest is a no-fuss, boiled-to-the-bone rock record that bristles with energy and focus, leaving plenty of space for subtle melodies, simple hooks and Tim Steward’s hope-filled voice” Rolling Stone

“Forget Jet, the Vines, even You Am I, Screamfeeder are hands down the country’s best rock band and “Take You Apart’ is all the proof you need. For real.” Time Off, Album of the Week

“This is Screamfeeder stepping back a bit and taking stock, in the process avoiding the more detailed production of their last effort and finding a sharper, simpler way of delivering their brand of indie rock. There’s a track called “I Don’t Know What To Do Anymore’ but don’t you believe it.” Rave Magazine

“The opening track “Now I Don’t Feel So Bad’ is an anthem for thirty-some-things, “I’ve Got The Knife’ is destined to become a guitar pop classic and the 60’s style ballad “You and me’ is nearly as hooky as “Hey Jude’.” Sain Magazine
