3/19/20: Pete Woods at Ave Noctum reviewed "A Blue Girl" by The Joy Thieves today. "This is pumped up and pretty damn explosive, just what you need a slap round the chops to wake you up. Simmering down a little it bounces away with enthusiasm and gives you a good shake like a dog with a rag doll caught in its jaws. Catchy and taking reference from all the above and many other bands you can think of it still has its own unique twist and is short enough to make you want to go quickly back and hear it again."
