Reviews of Semi-Truth's "You Call" 7" EP (NDN 21):

"You just don't know how long I've been waiting to hear something new from Jeremy Gluck. I'm so happy. He's still here, and I can no longer call him Buffalo Bill. His voice makes me feel at home. That slight waver against the strength. That purity and the loss. You can hide this single alongside releases by the Dharma Bums, the Jacobites, and maybe even some of that desert wave rock thrown down by the Gun Club, or the lady Tex and all her Horseheads. All I know is that it ain't going to be hidden by me. I'm singing these songs out the window in the middle of winter and letting the sunsets carry me home." (INK 19, Fall 2000)

" "You Call" begins sorta strangely atmospheric but builds to sideways alt. rock. With great tremlo voice and a cool harmonica solo (honest) over swirling guitar, this is good! Glad to say the other cuts get even weirder so NDN 21 is spot on." (Here Be Monsters #21, September 2000)

"Fronted by Jeremy Gluck (ex-The Barracudas), this five-piece creates pop songs with a rock edge. The vocals are good, except they are constantly being manipulated, taking away from how good Gluck really sounds. Despite the random bursts of noisiness, there's a definite Pixies influence throughout this three-song record." (Impact Press, October/November 2000)

"This band mixes a sound that have elements of the Undertones, Flipper, Cramps, Wall Of Voodoo, very avant alternative cool." (Toxic Flyer #31, 2000)
