"With ethereal trill and high register, Toth always tells a relatable story with each very distinct song. Whether through wistful harmonies, simple beats, thick bass lines, or synthesized keys, Social Potion carries with it the ever resilient soul of the ‘80s."
“Carmen writes amazing songs, and seems to channel Stevie Nicks at times -- the passion and honesty in her lyrics is like poetry in motion (is "Stevie" about Stevie Nicks)? The music has an air of mystery that draws you in.”
"...the music is catchy, it’s accessible and it’s Summery."
“Most listeners will wish the album is longer. You will not be able to get enough of Toth’s voice and her relatable lyrics.”
“Carmen Toth’s catchy Roots Pop music has certainly got plenty of contemporary feel... But the real appeal of her tunes, whether with the recording effects or when she’s on stage doing them in acoustic solo mode, is her by turns seductive and piquant voice combined with catchy melodies and the urgent passion of lyrics on tunes such as “Come Out And See Me”, “Minishka” and especially the tune I think is a hit-in-waiting, “Drive Myself Home”.”
“With a definite ‘90s flare and Toth’s voice comparable to Tori Amos, it’s no surprise Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush are listed as influences.”
