Reviews of The Oxymorons!

"Catchy, melodic songs..." - Round Flat Records, Buffalo, NY "Ben Schelker is a talented songwriter/lyricist with the ability to write rock hard hooks and turn a phrase or cliche into something beautiful..." - Trap Door Press, Dayton, OH

"Filled with ripping energy. This is the best thing to come out of Ohio since...well...uh...This is the best thing to come out of Ohio." - Cake, Minneapolis, MN

"This disc kicks hard from start to finish with dynamite songs and sheer intensity." - Baby Sue Music Review, Decatur, GA

"This 19 -track CD bristles with brash irreverence and youthful intensity, retaining the band's rough edges with its 'live in the studio'-sounding production. Essentially lean, punk-influenced power pop, played at full-throttle frenzy." - Dayton Daily News, Dayton, OH

"Forget the vastly overrated Breeders, the real sound of Dayton, Ohio, today can be heard in the...of Guided by Voices and the dismembered 'Mats roll of The Oxymorons." - Opition, Santa Monica, CA

"...The Oxymorons bring you this 19 song CD with enough variety and quality to actually listen to a 19 song CD! - Hectic Times, Santa Cruz, CA

"These guys ought to be local heros. If they aren't there is something wrong with Dayton. They play fast paced hooky pop songs somewhat in line with All's pop hardcore style." - FOE Magazine, Tampa, FL

"Good stuff! Will we be getting more? - WBWC, Berea, OH

"Kickin'! It's got that raw Midwestern sound we really dig." - WVSS, Menomonie, WI

"Nice rough sound - Vocalist need not change his voice at all - Perfection meets an Oxymoron in the larynx. Keep it up!" - WGMU, Fairfax, VA

"This one is really good!" - WPLS, Greenville, SC

"[The Oxymoron's] CD was great! I hope people check this out. I'm genuinely impressed" - KSPC, Claremont, CA

Reviews of The Oxymorons!

"One of Dayton's hottest bands...their shows are full of energy and are nothing short of a good time." - The Guardian, Dayton, OH

"At first I wasn't too excited, then [The Oxymorons] went nuts! They were completely psycho on stage. They were on the floor rolling around...Entertaining to say the least!" - Butt Ugly, Waukesha, WI

"This four-piece played unbelievably cool punk rock with mega tons of energy!!" - Scene Zine, Greenbay, WI

"Dayton's Oxymorons play real rock. No excuses, no-holds-barred, kick you in the head rock...Music energy is created by adrenalin. The best buzz is a natural one. Experience the buzz created by The Oxymorons live..." - The Inside Track, Dayton, OH
