The Mighty Fine / Press

“One of the top 10 albums of 2011!”

“On its latest stellar effort, the California trio extolls the most positive virtues of contemporaries such as The Menzingers and Against Me! - driving, punchy rhythms, soaring choruses and dynamic song structures - while still carving out a unique space for itself within the crowded punk universe.”

“The term identity crisis might turn some people off to a band’s sound, but in this case I use it with San Luis Obispo’s The Mighty Fine in the most flattering way possible. In Revival, the outfits sophomore effort, mixes in so many different pieces of punk rock staples and hits puree, resulting in 12 tracks of powerful guitar work, chunky basslines and rapid fire drumming that inevitably makes you constantly wonder just exactly what genre of punk they’re delivering.”

“Played with passion and a fiery conviction, but also executed with precision and carefully considered ideas, In Revival bares the mark of a band ready for bigger and better things.”

“Like Bad Religion, NOFX, Weezer, and Green Day, The Mighty Fine understands how to meld punk urgency and melodic pop into hooky, stomping rock replete with soaring choruses, crunching guitar-driven rhythms, and song structures that happily fake right and then swerve left. It’s exactly the sort of commercially popular punk rock that ignites the kids but nods respect to the punk of my bygone era. Do I hear a little of The Clash in there? Hell, yes!”

“The Mighty Fine reside in San Luis Obispo, CA and bring a pretty rad dose of tunes! Mastered by Justin Perkins (Screeching Weasel, etc), art by Dave Watt. 12 tracks of pure goodness in the vein of Against Me, The Menzingers, or Dead To Me kinda sorta stuff.”

“It’s always a good thing when a band’s sound is hard to pinpoint. On the first listen, I heard similarities to Bay Area stalwarts like The Swingin’ Utters, the driving pop rhythms and sing-a-long choruses running parallel to that flourishing scene circa the mid ’90s. The second listen revealed a more subtle grittiness and dynamic songwriting, leaving me to believe the guys in The Mighty Fine probably wore the grooves out on their Jawbreaker and Hot Water Music LPs.”

“The Mighty Fine are this badass punk band from San Luis Obispo. They combine almost all the punk subgenres on this album at one point or another, and it sounds great. It's a pretty awesome sound and I fell in love right away.”

“Raw yet refined and melodic yet hard hitting, THE MIGHTY FINE have skipped a couple rungs on the punk rock ladder, and should move from relatively obscure to a must hear band with this well executed and articulate disc.”
