"BAD INFLUENCE'S 'Where We Been' lays bare the band's influences, and as such the album is akin to a 13-tune program in how to acquire a taste for the blues."
- Mike Joyce, The Washington Post January 17, 1997
"Other contemporary Blues bands may be original and even better, but Bad Influence does a great job mustering up all the emotion and grit they possibly could hope for."
- John Fortunato of NY CD Blues
"...Bad Influence does these warhorse tunes justice, with a few nice twists."
- Tom Townsley of Blues Revue Magazine
"...an already dynamic group that genuinely seems to enjoy doing this project."
- Mike "Red Dog" Downes of Blues Connection Magazine
