"Chris McKay And The Critical Darlings' Satisfactionista is...a smoothie full of delicious guitar-driven melodies and delectable vocal harmonies. The band's latest release is chock full of stadium-sized guitar meltdowns and super-catchy hooks that go on for days. "
- Charley Lee, Flagpole Magazine (Mar 11, 0009)
"Chris McKay And The Critical Darlings absolutely blew me away...
They were by far the best band and got the best audience reaction, too. Where all of the other too-cool-to-care hipsters were just contrived or had no stage presence, these guys had a presence, with just enough spectacle."
