"Seattle’s Skeletons with Flesh on Them are way too damn good not to be sitting with a substantial record contract supporting them...Skeletons strike you as a quirky melodic indie rock band that clearly has that ‘local band sound’, but are also breaking out of that mold."
"I was overjoyed to hear a band that was using my favorite aspects of jangly 90s indie pop rock, and using them well without feeling dated. Skeletons do a great job keeping their pop catchy and warmhearted without being cheesy, which is no easy task."
"The Fish Don't Mind (self-released, 7.5/11) is ridiculously catchy, especially songs like "Houseguest," a song that attacks you like a lost Ted Leo track or "Neon Lights of Reno," the most developed and complex song on the disc."
"Don't worry - Seattle quartet Skeletons with Flesh on Them don't sound anything like their name might imply. (No death metal shred-fests about zombies, that is.) Rather, they play jangly, frenetic rock - think a more-melodic Pavement."
"...Skeletons with Flesh on Them stick to the perfect mixture of guitar driven indie rock and pop melodies. The Fish Don't Mind is the first real surprise that I've heard in 2008…If you like indie rock with some pop, then you should definitely investigate Skeletons with Flesh on Them."
"The backup vocals on the ebullient “Bein’ in Love” were right on, and by the time they got to “Neon Lights of Reno” I was fully convinced their adventurous pop stylings are going to win them plenty more fans soon."
"This Seattle based band cranks out some sorta eccentric pop-rock. Think jangly guitar…early 90s rock…A great little find for fans of all types of pop-rock as long as you were a fan of Weezer or a peer at one point or another."
