"Witty, spontaneous, haunting indie power pop, an orchestra for the palate...profound and intriguing..."
"Smart, tuneful pop-rock with tight vocal harmonies, subtle instrumentation and intriguing scenerios describes BFW...this band is absolutely deserving of label, film/TV attention."
"...Rivers Cuomo of Weezer started a session on Indaba to procure help from the community on one of his latest demos. After working closely with several Indaba members, he chose the version by Beware Fashionable Women. Now, Rivers is going to write lyrics for the song and finish it off, using Beware's version as the basis. This song will be included on a solo album to be released next year."
"…truly talented, hardworking independent artists…Beware Fashionable Women is a prime example of indie artists who work doggedly for their music to be heard."
"Reminiscent of Phantom Planet and all things pop, though in a good way."
"BFW has put together an engaging debut album that manages to be fresh while still paying homage to its musical predecessors. Fans of BFW will be pleased with the band's first outing - I was."
"BFW write songs that remind me of Teenage Fanclub, (sometimes even early Stereolab with Brian Wilson singing backups) and they approach their marketing in pretty much the same way TFC did too. The good news is - Teenage Fanclub wrote great pop songs. BFW does too."
"The contradiction of the light-hearted melodies and Beach Boys-esque harmonies make this album a positive indicator of the future of BFW."
"...sharp, complex power pop, refreshingly devoid of garage swagger or indie pretension...you'd probably never object to the melody-driven pop songs that BFW deliver…"
"Their largely strong and immediately enjoyable self-titled release hearken to mid-career Nada Surf, Phantom Planet, and Old 97s, a good thing, due to vocal and instrumentation similarities...talented, fun band with a great amount of potential, musicality, and songwriting chops."
"BFW’s sound captures that ironic alt-rock we all love from the 90’s. They remind me of bands like Weezer, Blink 182 and They Might Be Giants in certain ways. They also have some sweet Beach Boys-esque harmonies..."
"The band’s name and artwork muses on vibrant 60’s Audrey Hepburn stylings…a musical force of nature with a penchant for writing indelible pop hooks and sun-soaked harmonies, songs made for summer."
"...just about every song is loaded with sweet harmonies and bright, rocking choruses."
"The bottom line is the music knocks it out of the proverbial park with terrific harmonies, finger tapping rhythms and the guitar work that spells H.I.T."
