"Hats off to 89X radio for featuring Chore on their "Export" show. Combining styles heard from bands like Helmet and Hum, Chore puts their own distinguishing spin on dark and somber anthems without being irritating like Smashing Pumpkins or whiny like some of today's nu-metal bands. They're not that artsy, but their often long and unconventional song structures are probably the main reason why they don't get radio airplay. Highlight tracks are the cryptic "Scoutmaster" and "August", while the band's standout track is the compelling, melancholy and very intense "Superville". Recommended for those who like music that's heavy but a little different from the norm. 4 stars!"
Chore deserves more...

"Chore is definitely one of the stronger acts on Sonic Unyon Records. Unfortunately, it seems like not much attention is paid to them up here in Canada. This new CD is amazing, and the band deserves all the respect and accolades that are undoubtedly coming their way. Hang in there guys!"

"Chore's second CD is a worthy follow-up to their 1997 debut "Another Plebeian". Take equal parts Helmet, Hum, and Failure and throw in a dash of the Pixies demented lyrical approach and you've got "Take my mask and breathe". The stand-out tracks on this CD are "Trifler", "Superville", and "Imperial Roast", and the group experiments a bit with techno loops and a country-ish ditty featuring some beautiful violin work. These guys are from Canada, so you've never heard of them, but pick up this CD if you're into interesting, truly inventive music."
