The Boneyard

You really shouldn't be here

"The album opens with “So Let Me In, So Let Me Go” and

I almost wrote off the whole record as another moody rock album,

but listening further, Seven Stops proves to be anything but

generic. By the time you get to "Nyugalom," the centerpiece

of the record, "Mercy Kill" has taken you on a jazzy

romp with a twist at the half-way mark, and "Quiet Down"

and "A Feeling" flesh out the band’s range - bright

and punchy to rhapsodic and textured."

KVRX RADIO - Austin, TX

"Searching for hidden meanings, both real and

imaginary, is what drives them. In Quiet Down an

answer is almost tangible, only to slips away again,

leaving them flustered. With their for amalgam of noise

and gentle pop The Petals have created a string of

closely linked songs about doubt and trying to let go."

HERE COMES THE FLOOD

"Colin Humphrey’s drum work balanced power with precision; it’s not

every day that you hear a rock band feature so many waltzing

tempos, and Humphrey really locked down some fairly complex rhythms

while keeping the energy level high. When things got loud,

frontman Aaron Sheedy absolutely wailed on his guitar

(without the use of a pick, it looked like), his arm spinning and

blurring like the blade of a fan."

BORED IN PITTSBURGH

"Ein wahres Fuzz-Feuerwerk brennen THE PETALS in ‚Pin Head‚ ab.

Ein dutzend Mal denkt man, jetzt entgleitet Ihnen der Song,

aber dennoch schaffen es Aaron Sheedy, Michael Heitzenrater,

Daniel Grushecky und Colin Humphrey immer wieder den Song zu bändigen."

WE LOVE THAT SOUND

"Indie rock outfit outta Pittsburgh sporting

a nice lull with big hooks."

IF IT BE YOUR WILL

"Death might suck, but being alive and listening to

The Petals ain’t half bad."

PGH CITY PAPER

 

"The guitar-driven songwriting and hard-soft dynamics have

a distinct 90s feel, but there’s also something pleasantly

off-kilter and hard to describe going on here, which could

describe most of this foursome’s output."

MP3 MONDAY

 

"The track puts the songwriting abilities of lead singer

and guitarist, Aaron Sheedy, on full display."
