"With 17 songs doled out in under 20 minutes, the sense of urgency spills itself at every turn. . . . Exhilarating stuff." –Kerrang (Rated 4 Ks)
"Plain and simple, Paint It Black has got it. The songs they write not only have character but they seem like they have the qualities I can only assume women look for in ‘a good man.’ They are tight, powerful, funny, packed with tongue-in-cheek wit, and intellectual and politically minded–but not overbearingly so. . . . This uncompromising and unabashed onslaught of songs grips you by the throat and pins you up against the wall. With your feet dangling in the air, your interest will be piqued." –Colorado Daily (U of C)
"CVA is rife with strife, and quite possibly one of the best-recorded hardcore records in years." –CMJ New Music Report
"Paint It Black bring the noise like it’s 1983 again and this road has yet to be worn. Maybe it’s chemistry; maybe it’s magic–whatever the case, CVA fucking rips." Alternative Press (5 out of 5)
