<P>"Some heavy names were dropped in trying to get me to listen to this CD, names like Sonic Youth, Hüsker Dü, and The Pixies. Elite enough company to make any self-styled music critic both apprehensive and intrigued. The good news is that The Beatings belong in that elite company ... call The Beatings the heirs to the throne, and with challenging,dissonent-yet-melodic, and impassioned songs like 'Brighter Than Bright,' 'Experimental Test Monkey,' and 'Wring Me Out,' they deserve it. An excellent EP that deserves attention-- we could use a few more bands like The Beatings in these teen pop-dominated days" --Julio Diaz, Ink19.com </P>
<P>"Great indie punk, expressed as a mix of Superchunk and the Pixies. Walls of guitar and a twitchy set of male/female vocal leads. Plenty of distortion for all. With vox that seem for the most part like a war is being waged with one's larynx (and the larynx isn't doing too well). At any rate, <EM>6Hz </EM>demonstrates that the Beatings have the potential to continue making vital music." --Jeremy Salmon, Allmusic.com </P>
