"Man I can't listen to this album without feeling a wee bit subdued and chilled. It is good, it's catchy, man you hear dem song man and it's like "whoa". I bet Mannie Fresh was thinking about "drug girls" when he was making that song "Real Big" (which is why he sounds so distracted). Come to think about it, that song is genious, he just tells us that he likes oh everything REAL BIG. But by the same token we can say that Velocity Girl likes things real chill, this was from an era when Alternative music didn't mean anything on the radio, it was an actually form of music. And you could say this is alternative (but not by modern day standards unfortunatly. We all know the tragic tale and it's a little too late to get way too revivalistic about it, just appreciate the old music for what it was. I'd have to say that this is a great piece of music from the mid 90's, a mixed decade when it came to good music. Man I'm just distracted cause I'm listening to V. Girl (well) just like Mannie Fresh. He likes everything big, I mean he prolly has like a big watch on his wrist, which would be big enough to be considered a clock but it's a watch cause it's on his wrist. Man who ever watches thier watch? They should call it a glance, of course I haven't had a wrist watch for like a year now so why do I care. Time, time is a... oh where am I. I just don't really need to define this album for you, I mean they have songs samples, 30 seconds of something so awesome you really don't need to tap me on the shoulder and say "hey Mic will ya' tell me about V. Girl's sound." Fool please! Mannie Fresh, oh my what a song that is "real big" he must wear t-shirts that are the size of blankets to men of ordinary stature, almost god-like in apperance he must peer over his shoulder as meer mortals such as you and I see him in public. Real Big they tell me, oh I've lost the numbers, but I think it adds up to an incredable sum, one that is to soon be lost after recitation. This man, rich from his ego, will burn faster in the final days."
The Best Selling Sub-pop album.. pop bliss

"Velocity Girl Scores with their sophmoric release, absolutely outshining their first release, Copacetic. This is the melange of pop and crafty vocal harmonies that we have come to expect from Indie veterans Velocity Girl. Broken up in 1997, check out Sarah Shannon's new outing : Starry Eyes."
Perfect Alterna-Pop
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Easily their best album. The lead singer's voice coupled w/the harsh yet poppy rhythym guitar blend perfectly. The lyrics are very fun. We need more bands like this. In the era of soul searching, I hate life lyrics this band is a refreshing change of pace. Too bad this album is 4 years old and the band has split up. : - ("
