The best kept secret in music


"Punk Planet"

"This is such a great CD! I get the same feeling from these guys that I got when I first heard early Hot Water Music and Embrace, who both apparently influenced these guys. Highly recommended for fans of post-hardcore with lots of feeling." - Tim Kuehl


"These guys come on Fugazi like with vocals and dense intros. Then it gets more Jawbreaker kick-in-the-fuzz. But they somehow still sound kinda pop punk. Maybe brooding pop punk with attittude. Not nearly on the Fugazi/Jawbreaker level and ultimately a pop punk disc, this does work for me with its interesting blend." - Ray Lujan


"...a great mix of the hardcore roots and a more rock-based, melodic quality." - SKRATCH MAGAZINE


"Never.Only.Once's vocal delivery is akin to Perry Farrell in his better days while the sound is a mix between modern rock and post-hardcore. They’re similar to a Quicksand but with an updated approach. Its songs like 'Voiceless' and 'Latin Girl' that will appeal to both young kids and the twenty-somethings alike. The guitar riffs are amazing and are smoldering hooks that will have any with a pair of working ears grooving instantly. Reason Y Records has a winner on its hands, watch out CMJ Never.Only.Once are coming to conquer your charts."

"Following closely in the footsteps of the post-hardcore precession, Never.Only.Once have strong songwriting skills and a tight, enjoyable sound." - 30MUSIC.COM


"I was imagining a sullen, quiet, boring indie rock band, and I was given an up-tempo, post-hardcore verging on emo-rock band. Aside from my birthday and yule gifts, I would have to say that this was one of the best surprises I've gotten in the last few years. Mixing the best elements of Boys Night Out, The Goodlife, Thousand Foot Krutch, Brand New, and all those other bands with the same general sound, Never.Only.Once mix a high sense of harmony and beautiful vocals with a hard, punky edged sound."



"Throw together the rough vocals and interesting melodies of today's indie rock giants and the instrumental aspects of pre-MTV-explosion emo acts such as the Get-Up Kids and you'll have something that might almost resemble Never.Only.Once's album Our Own Heroes." - PUNK-N-JUNK.COM
