"It’s been said that everyone’s a critic, but admittedly there isn’t too much to criticize about the Earth Program’s debut album, “Invade!”
Fresh off the presses from “Obbityville”, the self-released album creates an experience not unlike sitting down as a kid and going through your parents’ record collection. Little stylistic bits jump out at you right away: acoustic arpeggios from Pink Floyd’s The Wall, Eno’s iconoclastic usage of audio samplings, late Beatles’-styled
psychedelic vocals, and all of it blended together in a melting pot with various incarnations of the pop-punk milieu." - LoudLoopPress

"Earth Program's first album INVADE! was almost my album of the year. It's so well done and so well thought out it seems like it was made by a much older band who has been experimenting for years. It's great to know that there's good smart odd rockers still out there ready to take over the mantle bands like Oingo Boingo or the Talking Heads dropped back in the 80s. Earth Program is not only a shining light for Chicago music, but music in general." - After Hours

"After only a few minutes into the album I feel as though I'm floating...
This is a rare and special find." - Perfect Avocado

"...I mean, just listen to "Eat Your Makeup," ok?
EP is pop enough to be bearable and strange enough to keep things interesting. Sounds like a fine time to be 20ish in Chicago." - 3hive

"INVADE! demonstrates that you can make a good album that is a lot of fun." - The Dadada

"A welcome relief after all the drivel that comes out of the radio otherwise." - Loyola Phoenix
