“If the opening track Dirt Bound doesn’t knock you down on the first play, the following cut, Hard Livin’ Man will certainly deliver that one-two punch… This is the type of music that will make you want to crack open a cold one, and enjoy your weekend! Recommended!”
Hard Rock Hideout – Austin, Texas (US)

“Something’s Dripping sounds huge and deserves to be huge. If AC/DC is sounding a bit stale to you these days then Bonafide is the perfect remedy. This is pure 100% crotch driven hard rock, and a must have for anyone that enjoys simplistic perfection. The definition of bona fide is authentic and genuine, judging by this release these guys couldn’t have come up with a better name!”
Sleazeroxx, Manitoba (CA)

“Look, do yourself a favour right now: crack open a cold beer, plug in the air guitar and rock out with Dog, Straight Shooters and the gung ho chorus of Hard Livin Man like your life depended on it! To wrap this review up, it would be easy to do the clichéd routine and make a play on of the band’s moniker but I’m not that predictable…oh fuck it, yes I am… Something’s Dripping is a Bonafide fist pumping, ass kicking, jaw-dropping monster of an album and, in the words of the band themselves, crank up the stereo and Fill Your Head With Rock…..NOW !!!!!”
Uberrock, London (UK)

“Sweet production helps this album shine, a bright light in a shitty rock n’ roll tunnel. Think AC/CD and the Cult, and I think you’re about right. They have wicked hooks, strong riffs, and a singer who has the attitude to match. The opening track, Dirt Bound, sets up the album as a trucker’s anthem disc, something to hit the highway to. Just try to stay the speed limit, I dare you. Hard Livin’ Man follows, and keeps it going and going, but what classic rock (sounding) album is complete without a slower song roughly in the middle? Elvis Chapel Blues fills this requisite, but it’s not even all that slow. Basically from start to finish Bonafide’s Something’s Dripping doesn’t let up. It’s an ass kicker!”
