" Prepare to pound the steering wheel or knock your skull off your neck when you get to the chorus. [of "Beautiful Fire"]"
“[Vices I Admire] are Colorado's next big act. They just are. The music is refined and potent. These songs will stick in your head. They will make you move. They aren't cock rock, they aren't stadium rock, they are super-garage rock, vibrant and fiery.”
“Vices I Admire. Not only is it part of a very cool phrase but it’s also a Denver band that I have come to expect big things from”
“Vices I Admire is but a humble group of four Denverites, who are slowly pushing their way through Shit Creek with a paddle made of pure Rock. Their new EP, Venom and Pride, is a 15-minute dash over white-water rapids and razor sharp rocks. It’s fast, it’s crazy, it’s fun.”
"Other bands out there should take a page from Vices I Admire’s book and simply make great music instead of trying to fit in."
“Out of all the new releases I have had the pleasure of listening to, from all over the U.S., The Politics Of Apathy is definitely in with the cream of the crop and is probably one of the best CD’s to come out of Denver this year”
"The new album, The Politics of Apathy, from Vices I Admire, is a nine-song combination of two of my very favorite things: an array of different styles when the band can do it right, and raw, in-your-face lyrics."
"...a great mix of precise musicianship, very emotional and polished vocals, well written lyrics, and sonic colors from many places in the musical rainbow."
"The full-length passionate album in itself is a strict split-down-the-middle tie between a CD I’d want to make love to, and want to make war to, and can only be described in one word: raw.
"This album has intensity, emotion and solid song writing."
"They break all the rules and push the limits and get away with it."
““Get ready to be owned, Denver, these guys have the swagger.” ”
““… eschew the indie rock cliché-of-the-moment in favor of gut punchin’ Rock ‘n’ roll . . . and have the chops to make you feel every blow.””
““… Vices I Admire takes the stage in a musically and visually rocking way, creating a frenzied energy that inspired audiences to jump, thrash and rock along with them.””
““… a group of crazy, intense performers… Obviously a band that has succeeded in creating a core fan-base, [Vices I Admire] is recommended for raw, revved up music and edge-of-chaos intensity.””
