Illinois Entertainer:
“Miniature Tigers the band, whose Tell It To The Volcano (Modern Art) packs plenty of
power in its tightly wound power pop packets.”

Relix:
“The unabridged Tell it to the Volcano is quintessential listening for aimless drives on coastal highways.”

Death and Taxes:
“Miniature Tigers couldn’t have have arrived at a better time. Tell It To The Volcano boasts a collection of well-crafted pop songs, free of pretention and often sun from the perspective of a quirky, lovelorn troubadour.”

Popmatters:
“Tell it to the Volcano is filled with the tunes that lodge instantly in your brain and have you singing along before the songs are even finished…This is fun stuff”

Sentimentalist:
“Miniature Tigers play stripped-down, simple pop that sounds like summertime nostalgia, warm, comfortable, and fun.”

My Old Kentucky Blog:
“Miniature Tigers play pop music with that earnest emotion (my heart is surely broken and it’s all your fault!) that Margot [& The Nuclear So & Sos] brings and blends it with the more upbeat poppy good time sound and solid melodies that Spinto Band always comes with.”
