"Edgy emo pop is where Brandtson have found themselves with this Death & Taxes. Catchier than previous offerings, this could earn the Cleveland boys' fanbase a healthy dose of followers. The chunky, energetic notions purveyed in You Do The Science and On Three bind well with the heartfelt crooning of In The Pills. Upbeat and fresh, Ain't No Trip To Cleveland is a generous helping of charming guitar pop and only enforces the reasoning that you can't go wrong with this record." - Rock Sound UK
