"Fine angular pop with a cerebral edge, designed for people who still think pop should mean something...The group has an appealing sound that combines the atmospherics of Radiohead with some melodic, chamber-rock orchestrations reminiscent of the Beatles, topped by some sophisticated keyboard stylings. The band's melodic skills make it a group to watch." -The Boston Globe, January 2002

"At its best, it's so immediately accessible that you'd be forgiven for thinking it's banal or even irrelevant, but live with it, let it seduce you with its own discrete charms, and this could prove to be a far more remarkable album than it itself would ever admit to. Modest power pop brilliance." -Ink 19, March 2002

"Opening acts often go unnoticed in reviews, but special mention goes out to Chauncey- a Beantown band that played a nice, tight set. While you'd expect the band that opens for Midnight Oil to be good, you don't expect it to play after its guitarist breaks his leg unloading the amps at Irving Plaza a few hours before show time. This is a band that has the chops. But more important, it possesses heart and soul." -The New York Post, March 2002

"Boston has always been fertile ground for some of America's finest pop and alternative music. The latest upstarts to rise from the culturally rich soils of Beantown is Chauncey, a five-piece outfit of seasoned musicians. The self-titled debut is a smooth and sophisticated Britpop-flavored gem that melds Bends-era Radiohead with the accessibility of Travis." -Amplifier Magazine, March/April 2002

"Chauncey performs a high-energy set of pop rock songs on which they have deservedly built their reputation. They seamlessly move through melodic rock, deliberate feedback space jams, and all out primal rock beat happenings." -The Noise, November 2002

"Best Rock Album of 2002. We were one more Creed song away from slitting our wrists when Chauncey's self-titled debut- loaded with swerving melodies, bending rhythms, and emotional truths- revived our faith in rock 'n roll. Not to mention in the Boston music scene." -Boston Magazine

"Chauncey have created a solid debut disc, while not particularly original, is nonetheless a catchy, easy listen that should appeal to fans of current Brit-pop and the tender side of modern-rock radio." -Seven Days

"We've said it before, but it never ceases to surprise us that forty-seven thousand bands can call the Beatles and Radiohead to mind, yet still continue to produce a music that falls squarely -and uniquely- between the two. Chauncey splits the difference of the oo-la-la piano pop and minor chord organ brooding in a way that no one else in town is doing right now." -The Weekly Dig, January 2003

"On first listen, we didn't like Chauncey. We were expecting something more, well, rocking from this band when heard that it recorded with legendary engineer, Steve Albini. For a dose of full-on rock, we were willing to overlook the band's pretentious disregard for upper-case letters and the obscure cinematic reference that gave the band its name (Peter Sellers' character Chauncey Gardner in the film "Being There"). We were ready to dismiss them; then, like the Grinch's heart growing three sizes, we warmed to Chauncey's hooky pop and found its lack of abrasion refreshing." -The Boston Globe, June 2004

"A little Coldplay influence here, a dash of Beatles there, "My Radio (Everything I Know)" is ideal music for an enlightened post-collegiate party." -Boston Magazine, August 2005
