"Many yawn-worthy bands have been inspired over the years by hard rock and metal from the '70s and '80s. But rest assured, there's nothing boring about The Blackouts.

Ali Frankfurt has a raw vocal delivery that contains a surprising musicality; Angela Mundt and Kate Innes play guitar like they're on a huge stage alongside Angus Young. Hope Hinkson, meanwhile, hits the drums with a power, precision and creativity that recall Janet Weiss and Dan Peters.. The Blackouts do the impossible and make bluesy, punk-infused hard rock exciting again."-Tom Murphy -Westword
