"This band reminds me of a cross of Stukas Over Bedrock and the Dead Kennedys on a bag of mushrooms in the hot desert sun. This band definitely is not playing it safe and trying to fit inside the box."
"Thirty one short sharp right on the ball tracks played with colour and imagination. Lyrics that bait, lyrics that bite, slices of humour, slices of frozen pizza, slices of clever comment, anger, situation switching and don’t get all hung up just because you’re a whitey, its only a colour! We’re talking a more than healthy mix of Minor Threat, Dead Kens, DRI, a touch of Slayer, a heathy math-core bite and that occasional experimental edge and that extra thing that could only come from, well, could only come from a Chinese punk band slamming out of San Francisco."
"Punk and doom metal, hardcore and splatter. The whole sung in English and Cantonese, to create a new genre: CantoCore. A lot of positive energy, screaming lyrics, power chords and “terrifying scales 101” a go-go, powerful drumming."
- Massimo Ricci, Temporary Fault
""Chink in the Armor" works, and is fun, though at times annoying and ultimately exhausting. SoCal's Say Bok Gwai are another entry in the experimental duo game, but have enough chops to keep them from ever being formulaic."
-Mike Wood, Music Emissions
"...the energy and clever lyrics take hold quickly. Louder is definitely better."
-J. Worley, Aiding & Abetting
"...the band mixes punk, metal, hardcore and little bit of expermental into the furious mix of sometimes serious, sometimes not, unique music. If you're into bands like Spazz, Dead Kennedys, D.R.I, etc and have an open mind for some original music check out Say Bok Gwai."
- Nick Martinson, Calihardcore
