“Plenty of bands have resuscitated post-punk throughout the 2000’s, but few have done so with the passion of the Savages. The band drew favorable comparisons to Patti Smith, Siouxsie Sioux, and a host of other strong female acts with post-punk roots.  Savages sound is particularly refreshing compared to many of their more contemporaries. The band often explore a taut echoes of jazz improv in its interplay before moving into experimental rock that flirts with grindcore and noise with a surprisingly effortless flow. ” AllMusic
