  • On REGRETFULLY YOURS, its first full-length album, Superdrag refines pop to its very essence and then adds a few dreamy layers of guitars. The result is an album of quality pop songs that hark back to such forebears as the Beatles and the Jam while asserting a post-punk heritage; the melodious feedback atop these songs is a love note to Husker Du and My Bloody Valentine.
  • "Cynicality" is typical of Superdrag's melding of bubblegum pop with indie-rock experimentation. It begins with a thick layer of fuzzy guitars, but proceeds to a chorus driven by '60s-style handclaps. The key to Superdrag's music is the song beneath the noise. In direct contrast to a lot of similar-sounding bands, the song is the entree, the guitar effects merely garnishes. It's clear that underneath the guitar pedal pushing, this band has nothing to hide.

Musician (7/96, p.95) - "...[has] volume and hooks aplenty, and on half these tracks they effortlessly blast forth the sound [Bob Mould] always aimed for but...missed..."

RIP (6/96, p.10) - 3 (out of 5) - "...It...grow[s] on you after a while, its impact as subtle as its sonic quirks and flourishes..."
