SPIN: Bon Mots are one of the most promising new bands out there. A-
JIM DEROGATIS: Jangly psychedelic/power-pop draws on Byrds and Zombies but rises to the top of this always-overcrowded genre by virtue of strong songwriting, swirling production.
AMPLIFIER: Understated irony frequently underscores bittersweet melodies.

Thomas James Durkin, regarding Best Revenge: "After too many years without new Bon Mots material, they grace us with this excellent album! All I could hope for, and a definite positive logical progression from their previous masterpiece, 40 Days & 40 Nights with The Bon Mots. Hope that the band keeps going, and releases more great music and playing great shows."
