"Eclectricity is an illustration of just where this artist is coming from, and perhaps where he’s going, so it definitely whets the appetite to hear more from this talented rapper. This disc leads you to wonder, if he was this strong five years ago or so, what is he capable of now? It’ll be interesting to see what kind of path Brevner charts from here, but, for now, Eclectricity is certainly both eclectic and electric, and leaves the listener catching his or her breath for the power and intensity of his rhymes. Definitely, Matt Brevner is one to watch, no matter what his name may be in the future. Eclectricity is, simply put, captivating."

"Eclectricity is an expression of poignant transition; like the season change from summer to fall where days are shorter, nights grow colder and the end of summer flings leave you with memories of a warmer time. Once the bitter reality of change kicks in, there’s somehow hope that comes from fundamental growth. Brevner realizes his own potential and self-destruction is only an option if it means progression. He isn’t stopping at Eclectricity and it’s obvious. This is just a peek into his younger mind and with his clear thirst for wisdom he is sure to grow only more ferocious."

"There’s no doubt that Brevner is an oncoming artist with a huge upside. He’s rapping about subjects something that matter. He’s producing music at a very high level. He also directs his own videos, which on occasion, win awards. This Album is Eclectic, the Songs Electric, the Result: Expected. Matt Brevner is Fuckin Here."
