What others have said about 'We Will Be A Factory:' 'The band has a muted pop edge, catchy, yet somber, which is thoroughly dramatic and compelling. Many of the songs, 'Standing in the Cold' and 'Handful of Pennies' in particular, rush forward with a sense of urgency reminiscent of early U2 tracks.'

What others have said about Yeltsin: 'Yeltsin's music is catchy, skillfully executed and satisfying... Stylistically the Eugene three-piece reminds me of the Pixies, which never sucks, and their dramatic guitar parts are right on.' Portland Mercury 12/11/03 'The 17 short minutes of music on this EP feels like a polished, pristine version of every good demo I've heard this past year. It's like a distillation of all that is worthwhile in modern musical trends.' Oregon Daily Emerald 1/15/04 'Yeltsin's sound is minimal yet potent and has a hint of darkness, built around the fundamental rock foundations of guitar, bass, drums and vocals.' The Oregonian 2/13/04 'Russia might be in trouble, but Yeltsin is strong.' Willamette Week 12/17/03 'The band played that urgent music that vibrates your table and hums through your body, making you feel good and young and a little wild. Eugene Weekly 11/13/03 'Yeltsin performs rock and pop in the vein of The Pixies or Pavement with catchy melodies and smart lyrics.' Eugene Weekly 9/25/03.
