"Their sound is an intricate and beautiful style of orchestral pop influenced by the Zombies, Nick Drake and "Pet Sounds"-era Beach Boys as well as more global avatars such as Os Mutantes and Astrud Gilberto."

“The record is a worthy listen throughout, full of beautiful Beatles-esque melodies and clever songwriting. Sherman obviously knows his way around a pop song... The Mints play with quite a few sounds on the record, mastering soaring orch-pop... and finding Sherman sounding like indie rock's answer to Michael Bublé.”

“Debut Out Of The Sky from The Steak House Mints is a richly layered/produced orchestral pop confection, with songs for the most part sounding as if Chicago were covering Magical Mystery Tour...”

David C. Eldredge - Illinois Entertainer

“So whilst maintaining a consistent overall sound and feel, we’re spoilt with a collection of extremely polished and beautifully arranged pop songs, which bring to mind artists as diverse as Flaming Lips, Colin Bluntstone, ELO, Tom Petty and Cars.”
