"Coattails CD Review"

"Rebellious lyrics evoke a liberal mindset and this singer/songwriter isn't holding anything back. Tackling such hot topics as religion, politics, racism, and drugs, Liz Berg doesn't stray from anything controversial. Her music is straight-forward pop-rock with steady rhythms and catchy choruses. Liz boasts a strong singing voice and her powerful sophomore record is one that will get her name out in the industry."
J-Sin - Smother Magazine

"Coattails CD Review"

"Singer-songwriter Liz Berg's rough-around-the-edges approach infiltrates her second album, Caattails, with a smattering of PJ Harvey-like vocals, The inherent spookiness of Polly Jean's compositions are absent from this effort, but Berg makes do with her own brand of "I am woman, hear me roar" rock. "Silent" stands out as a Celtic-enhanced ditty."

-Janine Schault - The Illinois Entertainer

"Jim DeRogatis"

"Inspired by some of the strongest voices of the New Wave Era, Liz Berg aspires to make sexy pop-rock tht is also smart, gutsy, and meaningful. She describes her new album "Coattails" as "social commentary on the tests of morality and forgiveness that paralyze government, religious institutions and relationships." She's at her best on the opening track, "God Says," which ranks beside other great musings on the ALmighty such as Cursive's "Happy Hollow" and XTC's "Dear God." Check out or better yet, catch her performance at the Red Line Tap, 7006 N. Glenwood, tomorrow night at 9PM." - Chicago Sun-Times Newspaper
