"Imagine The Ramones, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen and The Replacements having a punch-up over a girl in a diner and you’re almost there!" Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland (Album of the Week)
“Encounter Amalgamation & Capital anonymously and you might presume it a greatest hits rather than a debut ****” The Skinny
“Amalgamation and Capital is a series of short, sharp, barnstorming punk-pop tunes, strewn with hooks, fizzling with raw energy and perfect for restoring your faith in guitars and rock’n’roll.” Soundsxp
“This is an album that dispenses with frills, fuss or complexity and instead mixes an obvious love for both shit-kicking rawk and punk ferocity while deploying unavoidable pop hooks that punch a smile onto your face in swift bursts.” The List
“…many tracks here marking young Mr Devotion out as a frighteningly good new kitchen-sink songwriting talent. A brilliant debut.” AmericanaUK
“…genuinely anthemic feel, and the kind of gosh-darn perfect chord changes that make grown men leap about with joy.” A New Band A Day
