Some bands dream of greatness. They are aptly named Quickie and are reaching out and grabbing it. " - Jim Devers, Evening Magazine NBC
 
Quickie "500" is an orgiastic fury in 4/4 time, a slamdance bonfire of lost love, deathless fun, and sex like you never been hurt. This great American thanks the God above and the amber waves of grain that good men like Lou, Joe and Retten had the stone cold stones to release it... - East Portland Blog
 
Quickie's  World Record 44 Show's in 1 Day Tour made "the Top 10 Most Extreme Gigs Ever!" featured in Q Magazine the UK's #1 music magazine. Sharing to list with Madonna, LMFAO, The White Stripes and others.
 
Quickie's "Bikini Barista is 2 minutes and 14 seconds of awesome" - Heather Lee, KLCK 98.9FM
 
Quickie "500" has more hooks than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. There's hints of old-school AM-radio melody melded with now-time pop and rock tuneage. "Mosh My Life Away," "Stop Messing With Me" and others should do the trick when it's go-time on the dance floor. - There's Something Hard in There 
 
 "Dear All Local Bands: You Are Lazy. This Thursday local pop punk band Quickie is setting out to break the world record by playing 48 shows in one day. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?"-- Megan Seling, The Stranger
 
Quickie 500 - If you’re looking for that breakout novelty tune on Quickie‘s newest release 500, you’re going to be disappointed. But if you’re looking for a serving of punchy, upbeat pop-punk sing-alongs, then you’ve come to the right place. On the band’s newest release, 500, Quickie proves there is more to the sound than just the shtick, delivering 10 bite-size nibblets of power-pop goodness. - NorthWest Music Scene
 
 
Quickie 500 was such a different style from what I was used to hearing from Quickie. You guys not only transformed your sound but found a new foundation to put it on. I love how you guys were able to rediscover yourselves but made sure to not lose your originality. I love your song "Everybody Loves Somebody to Hate". It's so damn real and it's got this up beat vibe while explaining such a sad but true statement. I also loved "Mosh My Life Away", such an easy song to get lost in and one that hits close to home growing up around a music scene in Seattle! I loved all of it ! - Ryder KGRG 89.9 FM
