10,000 Maniacs is one of rock's most critically acclaimed bands.  The quintet's pop-conscious, literate and lush aesthetic helped reshape FM radio. Along with bands like R.E.M., U2, The Smiths, and The Police, 10,000 Maniacs is considered one of the primary architects of the college rock sound.

"10,000 Maniacs should be enshrined with rock's royalty...inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It would be a much-deserved honor." - Dave Astor, Huffinton Post

"If the songs of 10,000 Maniacs look squarely at the pain of the world, their darkness is balanced by an upbeat droning folk-rock that belongs in roughly the same mode as the music of U2 and R.E.M. In its faster-tempoed numbers, the music is actually danceable. The particular contribution to the genre by 10,000 Maniacs, who come from Jamestown, N.Y., has been to add strong Celtic flourishes redolent of 1960's British groups like Fairport Convention. These echoes can be felt most strongly in the modal inflections of the group's plain, circular melodies..." - Stephen Holden, NY Times
