"Indicative of a time when the punk rock DIY spirit was in decline, N.O.U breathed life into an otherwise dead genre. Pulling from various gospel influences (if not musically, then in tone and intention), 13-Point Program was a wake up call to get off your ass and do something. Self referencing high school dilemmas and the realities of being a kid (exemplified in 'A Kid Who Tells On Another Kid Is A Dead Kid' and 'Today I Met The Girl I'm Going To Marry'), the youthfullness of N.O.U comes through with such passion that you almost want to relive the torture of high school all over again."
N.O.U. redefines DC punk

"Instead of going the predictable route with yet another gloomy emo retread, DC's Nation of Ulysses instead put together a volitile mixture of gospel, jazz, and punk. The result is startling and frenetic, unlike anything before them. Combine the music with the surreal and cryptic propaganda in the liner notes, and you have the classic that is their first album."

"These youths came crashing out of the Fugazi dominated DC punk scene unexpected and overwhelming. Ian Svenonious delivery of a mysterious propogando laden youth gospel is at times screamed then whispered into the ear. The band takes its hardcore energy and channels it into a jazz structure leaving the whole mess busting at the seams with intensity that if not prepared can be off putting. All together one of the most compelling albums of the decade and the premiere of a new voice that can still be heard preaching over the hot rodded soul of the Make-up."
