“…to be honest if you don’t find yourself feeling pumped and singing along, you best check your pulse to see if you are actually alive.” /DISTORTED MAGAZINE, UK
“The new wave of pop punk, post rock in underground landscapes! BUY OR DIE!" /FIRE ALIVE, ITALY
”Instead of becoming one of all the meaningless BLINK-182-wannabeees it feels like this band got both the knowledge and ambition to write really sharp punkrock-projectiles.” /CLOSE UP MAGAZINE, SWEDEN
“…"Closer", the best song on the record, which has a KILLER opening riff. The hook is infectious enough to propel a band to international fame all by itself…” /ROCK FREAKS, DENMARK
“These astonishing levels of energy and intensity do not diminish throughout One Step Closer. From the instrumental warm up of ‘Intro,’ Misconduct blast into the album with ‘Closer,’ a melodic blend of ridiculously fast drums and guitars.” /ALT SOUNDS, UK
“I can’t find a weak song on the album.” /ASICE, HOLLAND
”… ‘One Step Forward’, the album’s highlight and as perfect a melding of punk and pop as there’s ever been, with lead singer Fredrik Olsson chanting the iconic chorus of, "One step forward, two steps back" over soaring guitars and pneumatic drumming.” /ROCK LOUDER, UK
”The intro track is so god damn ass-kicking good that I almost don’t know what to do with myself!” /JOYZINE, SWEDEN
