@mangowavereviews said "“This is not a rock album, this is a manifesto for the free people”"

“From Dub to Hard Rock, and from Rap to Synth Rock, 9 o’clock nasty have never before been so loud and clear, so thirsty and sexy, and so sober as they are on Culture War 23.”

@nenesbutlerpresents said "Culture War 23" is: rebellious, quirky, confident and brilliant!”

“The band does not refrain from articulating their opinions and critiques on various matters, such as politics, media, religion, art, and consumerism. The album’s lyrics are clever, ironic, and sometimes controversial. 9 o’clock Nasty does not take themselves too seriously, but they also do not sacrifice their artistic vision and integrity. The sound is diverse and vivacious, alternating from catchy and upbeat songs to dark and heavy ones.”

@edgarallanpoets said “Their music embodies a complete rebellion against the society we live in”

“These were people steeped in culture, who had discovered in music a medium to articulate thought-provoking perspectives and, above all, to ignite introspection and inquiry about the world around us.”

@musictaste__ said “an amalgamation of heartfelt joy, raw anger, and biting satire”

“The Album ends on an unexpectedly joyous note with Bird of Happiness. The song has a different vocalist at its head and a strong message about finding someone that makes you joyous. I think this is the correct way to end the album. Believing in nothing feels as pointless as blindly following the crowd. By sticking a flag on this hill and declaring that love is meaningful, it contextualises all of the album's negativity towards superficiality, respect, money, and modernity. The album has a point, saying those things don’t matter but love does. I think it’s a strong narrative close that separates this album from a lot of absurdist and nihilistic projects I've heard before that just simply explore some ideas and then anti-climatically end. Sort of like this.”

@endsessions said “that is what makes the presence of "9 O´CLOCK NASTY" so magical, because it is composed of members who love their art, promote relentless melodies that can be differentiated from each other.”

“why should we listen to this new album?", well, bluntly the truth is that surely you also feel overwhelmed by just listening to love tantrums and tired of experiencing saturated sounds without any sense, while supposed "artists" sing with their talent called autotune, (I know, our generation does not is the best consumer of content)”

@sinusoidal.music said “Within the bands in the spectrum that continually shock me, 9 o’clock take the cake. These licorice pliers connected to a battery pack made of lyrical and melodic BeanBoozles jellybean packs.”

“Their joyous sense of humour, unique rabbit hole inspiring lyrics-treating the genres like a manic palette-this is what will always get 9 o’clock more fans. I am a little biased when I write this love letter for them, but who can’t be? An indie band going all out for all of their songs, while having the time of their life? Sign me up to be one of their Nasties for life.”

@edmrekords said “Each song brings something fresh yet cohesive to the collection, appealing to multiple musical sensibilities. It’s their most fully realized artistic statement yet, showing a band truly coming into their own.”

“Fans of adventurous punk, insightful lyrics, and visceral energy won’t want to miss this thrill ride of an album. With Culture War 23, 9 O’clock Nasty stakes their claim as a vital emerging voice in modern rock.”

@jpgchief and @never_say_never_quizboy said “…you’ve just been blasted in the ear-hole by some guitar-riffing, rhythm-pulsating, upbeat rock and roll peppered with a dash of “mildly sarcastic” lyricism. Would you know what time it is? “

“The album is an interesting fusion of Brit-Punk grit/attitude, Classic Rock experimentation/melodics, and anthemic Beastie Boys cadence in delivery. It’s a thirteen-track, full-length audible journey across these spectrums. One thing that strikes me in particular about the band’s sound is their unapologetic approach to thought-provoking, societal, some might say controversial, topics and yet at the very same time being musically upbeat and driving. Fit for listing to in a “party” setting or on a road trip. All bases covered”

@lostinthemanor_blog said “…whimsy, rhetoric, and satirical narratives. With soundscapes infused with groovy funk and gritty riffs, they forge rebellion in the old-school way. It’s edgy, fresh, and new. “

“The album opens with ‘Too Cool’. It is rigged with powerful bass lines, anthemic verses, and inciting drum work. They reference a lot of 80s and 90s rock styles in how they use riffs to dimensionalize sound and evocation. The track shares the presentation value and style of tracks like ‘Mood is Low’ and ‘Mickey Humpper’. “

@york_calling said “It starts with Too Cool. A track I covered right back at the start of the year, I described it at the time as a primal scream. Here, it acts as an energetic and manifesto-delivering opening.”

“Savage Mechanic is an atmospheric highlight peopled with characters that feel both otherworldly and painfully recognisable. Disco Investors is hard rock anarchy that pairs nicely with the obscene indulgence of Sleepy Policeman. Rise Up is an ominously uplifting folk protest song.“

@senocular_media said “o’clock Nasty is an indie band that has taken listeners on a psychedelic ride”

“Their new album Culture War 23 is the culmination of their evolving sound throughout their last 10 singles, with the inclusion of three new jams.”

@themetalpriestess said “this rock album is certainly not one that you want to miss.”

“upbeat, groovy rock track that will certainly get you off of your feet. From the second this track began, I was instantly hooked. The music is very rocky, and there is no denying that all the instrumentalists are immensely talented, and the vocals are just brilliant.“

@thewildiscalling said “They embrace their age and flaunt it with joyous flamboyancy.  To know them is to adore them and what this kind of revival represents”

“9 O’Clock Nasty is having a great time.  This borderless genre defying mischievous trio hits pay dirt with the release of their new record Culture War 23.  Anchored by their breakthrough funky fresh smash Too Cool and playing to the algorithms waterfall single trickery, the Nasty drop 3 fresh tunes to round out 7 previously released singles.  Seven plus three makes an album and Culture War 23 truly delivers as a complete work.  Altogether its fairly indie punk eclectic though there are influential connections like the Beastie Boys flavor heard on Too Cool and Mickey Humper; Or the Stooges era punk heard on Savage Mechanic or Mood is Low.  “

@musechronicle.inc said “all of thе songs sharе a common thrеad: thеy arе all wеll-craftеd and thought-provoking piеcеs of music that еxplorе important social and political issuе”

“Culturе War 23 is a powеrful and thought-provoking album that is surе to rеsonatе with listеnеrs of all agеs. It is a must-listеn for anyonе who is looking for music that is both catchy and mеaningful“
