babysue - Chattanooga, TN
"...Our guess is that Strange Change Machine represents the band at their peak..and in the future this will always be the album that all of their other recordings are measured by...These two discs are bursting at the seams with good vibes and soaring pop melodies...The four members of The Grip Weeds are on top of their game here."

GoodSound - OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada
"Strange Change Machine roars to life with an explosion of drum rolls...throbbing guitar delays, ringing major seventh chords, and soaring harmonies are proof once again that The Grip Weeds belong in rock’s pantheon."

05/10/10
Paisley Umbrella - Austin, TX
"It’s packed full of great songs, epic in length and substance, but stand out as a great rock album that has material that will continue to be discovered, which is the true trademark of a great, enduring rock and roll album."
