"...More rock'n'roll than traditional hardcore...YOURS TRULY has all the good stuff....[It] should appeal to both old fans and new."
Melody Maker - 12/5/00, p.574 stars out of 5
- "...16 bursts of seething hardcore...mauling America's video-saturated chart tedium...savages the passionlessness of wall-to-wall pop...and tears the throat from conveyor-belt commercialism..."

Sick of It All frontman Lou Koller is a raging mad man, a vocalic inquisitor of sorts, and Yours Truly, the band's sixth album, sticks with the same vein of angry punk rock. Pure grit and growl swirl among speed metal guitar licks and thunderous percussion, Sick of It All twists the new millennium punk revival backward to achieve what once was an intimidating scene for music. The namesake says it all, therefore, cuts such as "Hello Pricks" and "Hands Tied Eyes Closed" depict the band's overall aggression against mainstream and social norms, for music is the supreme escape. The lyrical cynicisms are dead on, a little humorous even, but Sick of It All keeps it hardcore. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
