"First Exposure"

"The fourth album from this Arizona trio appears to be the spawn of grunge and stoner rock: a Vedder-esque howl is occasionally unleashed, and the metal riffs are sun- scorched. But Love Mound more consistently aims it's lens at the Who's Live At Leeds, Husker Du's Zen Arcade and Sabbath's Master Of Reality. These dozen tunes also get a serious ZZ Top blooze injection, a point underscored, sartorially speaking, by brawny guitarist Mike Mihina's long beard and big-ass Stetson."
--Magnet Magazine - Magnet

"Loud As Jets"

"Mike Mihina (lead vocals and lead guitar) calls it 'loud as jets hard rock,' and he's right. However, Love Mound's inspired lead guitarist humbly leaves out the part about how the band's live performance is hyperactive and soulful and never disappointing."
-- Tucson Underground


"Johnny meets Satan"

"Love Mound is a guitar-driven trio packed with furious blues-rock vengeance. Their performance was packed with angry, sick, loud, bearded, kick-ass guitar. It was Jonny Lang meets Satan."
-- AZ Night Buzz -

"In Your Ear Magazine"

"This band combines elements of the unforgettable grunge era with plain old
hearty rock and roll? Love Mound tackled above genres and decided to add
some punk rock into the whole mix. The result isn't messy; it rocked, pure
and simple!"
--Melissa Edwards -


"Love Mound, who got us all hopped up on adrenaline with their impressive,
wall-rattling brand of heavy, Midwestern-style rawk."
--Stephen Seigel, Tucson Weekly - Tucson Weekly

"Don Jennings"

"I like to say that Love Mound is the hard edge of Helmet colliding with
the driving blues of ZZ Top, but that doesn't do these guys justice. Turn
your stereo up to 11 when you catch Love Mound live on Locals Only."
--Don Jennings - Locals Only, KXCI 91.3 FM
