"Hailing from Philadelphia, the launching pad for many great neo-psych groups, we now get The Orange Drop. The Orange Drop blends dreamy psychedelia with some darker, acid-laced sounds of the sixties. Brian Jonestown Massacre fans (particularly the early records) should appreciate The Orange Drop’s approach that is both lo-fi and polished. If this is garage rock, it was made in a garage that conceals an amateur LSD lab. There’s a definite feeling of late sixties California here as well, and even during the moments of darkness there is always a sense of distorted sunshine getting through." - Tim Ferguson (Active Listener, The Red Plastic Buddha)

"Once in an orange moon a band comes along that blows your brain clean out out your skull with the sounds they are making. Today to me the moon looks like a great tangerine suspended in the bright blue sky of dawn, and The Orange Drop are that band. Re-inventing 60s psychedelia with a 21st century twist of experimentalism, “The Orange Album” is their second album of the year – bursting at the seams with supersonic guitar riffs, beautiful kooky singing, mighty drums and bass, a Beatle-esque risk-taking dance between styles and digital mind-altering tricks of sound, it is the fanfare of a gang of young musical magicians discovering just how brilliant they really are." - Steven Small (Daydream Generation)

"The Orange Drop, seep into your ears placing an accessible comforting fog, supported through searing drone guitar with a backend propelled heartbeat that peaks through the clouds, creating a fluidly absorbing sound" - Michael Colavita (Philadelphia Deli Magazine)

"As the dropper settles onto the tip of my tongue, the ceiling slips away, the floor morphs into sand, my walls lap at my feet like phosphorescent waves, and everything is blown clean as I step into the fourteenth year of the twenty-first century, with The Orange Drop re-inventing all that I’ve held dear, and guiding me toward a blue sky dawn of hypnotic wonder and deliverance." - Jenell Kesler (It's Psychedelic Baby)

"The Orange Drop are dangerous, lysergic, dreamers." (theblogthatcelebratesitself)
