"Their music is rhythmically complex and light-feeling despite its heavy guitar and drums...their songs are danceable, jazzy, classical, experimental and even a tiny bit metal...There’s definitely a place for music that is made simply for enjoyment, and Anthropology get that."
-Kia McGinnis, SLUG Magazine
"This type of Midwestern math-pop made by and for music eggheads often goes unexplored by musicians shoehorned into bands who don’t have the same penchant for shredding in some perversely weird time signature or really appreciate near–blast beat double kick drum or two-handed tapping in a pop format. Every once in a while, those musicians find each other and the racket is beautiful."
–Ryan Hall, SLUG Magazine
"'KOKEKOKKO' propels itself forward with purposeful energy, and includes a dreamy interlude in the middle that creates a nice resting point. Genre-hopper 'Bow Do Doo' flips between smooth jazz and muscular metal-style guitar riffs."
-Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly
"Sounds about the same as throwing 4 instruments down a cliff" - Patrick Samdos
