“With an Updike-eye for quick character study, Mickelson creates everyday people and the unvarnished nuances of their daily lives.....He’s become the Tracey Ullman character sketcher of songwriting, where his songs are microcosms of American society.”(full review) Music News Nashville
“There is a rambling roots feel in the songs of many San Francisco area based bands such as American Music Club, Counting Crows and, on a Pop level, Train. Fat Opie are members of that club... AlternateRoot.com
“The newest release from this San Francisco-based trio rolls out of the speakers like a freight train threatening to leave the tracks and rarely slows down.” - Rapid River Magazine
“In times that acts like Mumford & Sons rules the airwaves, there should be room for one more and let it be Fat Opie. KeysandChords.com
