It's easy to pigeonhole this Austin, TX quartet as the best all-women rock band ever. Truth is, they are one of the best rock bands regardless of sex."

"One of the most sexually relevent albums ever."

"Amazing harmonies and vocal arrangements, the ability to swell and ebb at the drop of an eighth note, and very unconventional ideas about melody and song-structure are what the Girls do best ... A stunner."

"The emotional resonance of Phillips' music is universal, which - in a way - makes it even more radical in its implications."

"As far as lyrics are concerned, this album proves to be the most entertaining one I've heard in a long time ... This album is a must."

"What makes Two Nice Girls so interesting is the way they take sexual orientation for granted ... they transcend every category into which one is tempted to pigeon-hole them. They're just four strong women, playing some of the most interesting music currently out there."

"Their sense of humor, kitschy arrangements and irresistible harmonies endear them and their debut LP to audience of all persuasions. You should hear how liberating 'Last $10' sounds when 300 predominantly straight people sing along.'

"(Last $10) is poignant and hilarious, one of the lyrics of the year ... Don't lazily equate noise with revolution--too many make that mistake and we end up with reactionary retards like Guns N' Roses or the Beastie Boys being seen as rebels. The 2 Nice Girls LP is a dozen times more subversive than anything House Of Love have ever done, and more awkwardly truthful."

"The wonderfully proud (but not brow-beating) lesbian stance in their beautiful love songs and their affectionate cynicism for the man's world around them is often set against a sharply contrasting musical backdrop."

"Two Nice Girls use abandon and intensity without letting hardcore's inherent consumptive energy dissolve the more acoustic emotional dynamic range ... The vanguard just does not get any better than Two Nice Girls."

"Two Nice Girls are composedly sure of their abilities as musicians, enough so to feel comfortable with any style of music ... They're serious, they're folky in places, and they're unashamedly out, but these women manage to take their music into the mainstream, manipulating every genre going."

"Two Nice Girls take the ridiculous and create the sublime."

"Two Nice Girls have quite a knack for taking other people's material and turning it into their own, often equaling or transcending the power and aesthetic value of the original."

"Two Nice Girls are the lesbian Beatles."

"Listening to Two Nice Girls, one arrives at the conclusion that the band must be contenders for producing some of the most beautiful music in recent memory. The quartet combines a staggering diversity of instrumental competence with sweet, heart-rending vocals that, whether presented solo or in harmony, never fail to elicit satisfaction."

"For all the inspired covers, the real artistry of Two Nice Girls lies in the way they've managed to forge a cohesive group style without diminishing the individuality of four creative voices. By refusing to pull punches or respect boundaries, the band has earned the popular response it deserves on its own terms."

"Two Nice Girls is a band of several different mindsets. At one moment, it's a ferocious loud-rock outfit, with screeches of guitar feedback and a tough backbeat, at another, it's a neo-folkie ensemble with beautiful three-part harmonies sung with exquisite timing and grace."
