"I vaguely recall a member or two of Widespread Panic mentioning they were fans of LT back in the late 80's/early 90's. However, I certainly wouldn't call them big influences despite a track called "Love Tractor" on the second album. I do, though, agree with your labeling TANO as their masterpiece. What a fun record. I would love for that rumor about them recording again to be true. These guys used to put on a great show. Were there an Athens music hall of fame, LT would deserve their own room, sandwiched right between Pylon and REM."

"now this is what i call fun. this is a whole bunch of stuff...jangle from REM, reverb from jesus and mary chain, surf guitar from somewhere in california, vocals from let's active...yet it's all somehow distinctly athenian. i think, in many ways, love tractor was sort of the definitive athens band of the 80s. not REM, not the B-52s or pylon...but all the more representative of the athens scene for that. while never really famous, they always put out solid albums, instrumental in the beginning, eventually graduating to vocals. this is their last album before a 13 year hiatus, and probably their best ever. i recently ordered their 1982 debut, and am looking forward to hearing their original sound. because of their talent, originality, and laidback work ethic, they have earned two spots on my upcoming 2-disc athens retrospective mix."

"If Mars was colonized about twenty years ago, with cities and bars there, my guess is that Love Tractor probably would have been the in-house bar band. These guys have such an unusual sound, that it's hard to describe. Themes From Venus stands as my favorite LT album..."
