"Parade is a reason to get excited about pop music again." - Flagpole, May 2004
"To see such a young band playing such pretty yet gritty power pop with style makes me feel old; I can only imagine, however, that it would have some other less-polished local bands feeling a lot older." - Flagpole, June 2005
