DETROIT METRO TIMES" JEFFREY MORGRAN describes "Happy Suicide Jim as having "Catchy convulsive pop songs that take their quirky fuzztone cue from Pretties For You. " THE CELEBRITY CAFE's Courtney Thompson totally captured the band in her review of the group's debut album, HAPPY SUICDE JIM as she wrote, "It appears as a fun and mindless album until one opens up its ears to the Love Kills theory's message (from mind-control in the school system, adversity)." Even G. Gordon Liddy's radio producer Franklin Raff was blown away by the band, uses it as bumper music, "This is the kind of music I grew up on."
