"Now, four years later, Greeley's own nine-piece band with a sound branded 'Sweaty Soul Music' is on the verge of taking off with the Jan. 9 release of its first full-length studio album, Got to Feel." Darian Armer, Greality Magazine, pg. 26 

"...the idea, they said, is to enjoy being a band that loves having a good time and seeing others dance to their music. They could continue to be one of the hotter bands in northern Colorado...Or they could make it big and open for, say, Stevie Wonder one day." Dan England, Greeley Tribune

"Got to Feel, the first full-length studio effort from Greeley-based soul outfit The Burroughs, deserves a place on the shelf between the likes of Parliament Funkadelic and Sly & The Family Stone. The record is packed with old-school soul grooves that pound through a listener’s ears and into his/her feet." Will Black, Argento Studios 

"Got to Feel is a sonic exploration unlike anything seen from the band before. These nine songs are more than just a breath of fresh air, they are the thunderstorm the people have been waiting for. Fresh, unapologetic, and a journey into the heart of what they’ve been doing all along, this album breaks them free from any particular labels." Bandwagon Magazine

"The Burroughs arrived onstage adorned in the full regalia of the Looney Toons team ready to take the court in the seminal film Space Jam...At first I was a little perplexed by their schtick, but as the show rolled it became obvious that this band has some serious chops...They wrapped up the whole shebang the same way the film did, with “I Believe I Can Fly.” After this show most in the room believed they too could in fact fly." Music Marauders

“I hope you are ready because The Burroughs are back at it! Premiering their new video “Touch The Sky” in anticipation of their new album out January 9th, The Burroughs show why they are so good at what they do.” Bandwagon Magazine

"Of course, more often than not, the creativity The Burroughs exudes comes from performing live on stage – something which they fully realize. Burroughs and his bandmates aren’t just providing lip service about playing music with their friends and they think that solidarity is a big part of the sound that they have on stage." The Marquee

"With nine players — complete with a charismatic frontman, guitar and bass players, a drummer and four horns — their sound harks back to an age when soul was just a stone’s throw from the hallowed halls of gospel." The Know

"It really does take a lot to stop me in my tracks and make me listen… even harder to make me turn around while I’m walking off. Nothing online will prepare you for the energy of a Burroughs’ live show."  Chris K. - The Colorado Playlist

"Recorded at The Moxi Theater in Greeley over two nights in May, the album showcases a high energy funk and soul band through 13 tracks that mostly last over five minutes each. It becomes clear why the band chose to release a live album: this is music best experienced live. You can imagine audiences getting worked up into a sweaty frenzy, creating its own kind of funk." Hey Reverb

"The lead single of the release is “You Are My Joy.” The Burroughs wear their influences on their sleeve with classic soul music touchstones, smooth soulful vocals, and just the right amount of horns. When the bridge of this track comes, it’s hard not to at least bob your head if you don’t first find yourself clapping along." BolderBeat - Boulder, Colorado

"There’s a carefree approach to their work that mimics the freedom of soul music. The Burroughs have mastered in transcribing what it sounds like to them."  BandWagon Magazine

"The Burroughs’ self-titled EP showcases a sound that builds off of itself, utilizing layers of vocals, heavy bass lines, rhythm guitar and a proliferating brass section to create something of a whirlwind of absolute power." Scene Magazine
