“Manchester-by-the-Sea’s the Rupert Selection impressed greatly with a sound anchored in hard rock but thrown pleasingly off-kilter with a few whiffs of non-fussy prog and bursts of speedy psychedelia.
It was fierce but thoughtful. Rupert has an original voice, and I look forward to hearing more from them.” - The Boston Globe
“Both thunderous and jagged, they kept the crowd on its toes as they zig-zagged through a wealth of stylistic approaches; the band may have also had the loudest and most eager response from the assembled crowd. If there was one band that had a true coming out party at the 2017 Rumble, it was The Rupert Selection.” - Vanyaland
“The Rupert Selection sparked the loudest crowd interaction, with fans shouting to fill pauses in the Manchester-by-the-Sea trio’s deft, dynamic mash of Nirvana-esque blasts and math-prog rhythm shifts” - Improper Magazine
"The Rupert Selection has curated not only a spellbinding musical vibe, but a darkly intriguing visual style, bridging the multimedia gap.  They're strong sense of narrative and technical skill is plainly apparent in their latest video for "Tree Hands", the opening track on Baseball Practice.  Opening with a haunting soundscape, the EP continues with tight, mixed-meter grooves on "Moon Cats in Taxi Cabs", and consistently progresses through a tale of provocative songwriting and musical prowess." - The Deli Magazine
