“OFFICE’s music is conducive to intellectual and physical involvement from the audience. This is a dance band for the thinking man.” - Craig MacInnis, Calgary Sun.

“OFFICE is a new, extremely talented young band taking itself very seriously …” - Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun.

“Sadly, there are too few bands in this country playing this style of music.” - Bryan Williamson, Calgary Herald.

“Socially conscious and politically concerned.” - Ronald Ramage & Stephen Weatherbe, Alberta Report.

“OFFICE … is a master of musical mood and texture.” - Craig MacInnis, Calgary Sun.

“You need a stop watch for this band, it has so many starts and stops, so many asides within each song.” - Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun.

“The total impression remains very much individual and unique.” - Anthony Chau, Airtight.

“The effect is something approximating music for a nightmare – chilling and full of dire suggestiveness.” - Craig MacInnis, Calgary Sun.

“Edmonton-based OFFICE could possibly be the most aggressive and amusing band in Alberta right now.” - Craig MacInnis, Calgary Sun.

“One sodden drunk inadvertently gave the band a gem of advice, “Jesus will you play something we understand?” he bellowed.” - Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun.

“The OFFICE rendition of Olivia Newton-John’s monster hit, “Physical,” is done the way it should have been done.” - Anthony Chau, Airtight.

“A raucous version of Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical.” Now ladies, doesn’t that make your body sweat?” - Vejjy Tate, Airtight.

“… the reception was warm - so warm, in fact, there was nary a still body in sight.” - Bryan Williamson, Calgary Herald.

“OFFICE’s snarling rendition of Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” may be one of the best covers since Sid Vicious did “My Way.” - Mark Roppel, Gateway.

“They ended with a cheerful pillaging of Olivia’s Physical.” - Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun.
