"While Spare Parts for Broken Hearts is undeniably a band in the truest sense, it’s tough to get past the fact that Sarah Green is one of the most powerful vocalists and raucously charismatic front people in L.A. right now."

"Ever since Long Beach’s Spare Parts for Broken Hearts came out of the shadows in 2016 with the single “Pleasure Delay,” they’ve been one of the Southern California bands most likely to move mountains. Or turn them into molten lava."
- BuzzBands LA
"The band seems to be hitting its stride having gotten some terrific notice for their last single “Mush” which has racked up over 170+ streams on Spotify. I’ve always been partial to Sarah’s songwriting, but with “Mush” she really hit that sweet spot in maintaining a perfect balance between seriously ripping rock and carefully crated pop sensibilities. I think that’s why “Mush” has appealed to so many listeners."
- Blurred Culture
"Spare Parts for Broken Hearts are led by singer Sarah Green. Her heroic, anthemic vocals lift up such heavy passages as the group’s recent single, “Mush,” which alternates between introspective sections and more propulsive grunge-rock shifts. Green has the ability to remain coolly powerful and assured within the eyes of the swirling storms she and her bandmates generate. There is something both uplifting and cathartic about the way she chases the pain away with a mighty, soul-clearing howl." - LA Weekly
"Despite the track’s roots in the beloved grunge, “Mush” and its musical components are neither sloppy or waning in its delivery. SG wails on distorted power chords alongside deeply, thunderous bass lines, and forceful drumming. Slewed within SG’s fragmented lyrics, a slow burning hurt is issued by her gravely powerful tone: “Soak it up / Pain / Your medicine / Choke it up / Pain / And get numb / To the pain.” Melodic at moments and constantly riddled upon disenchantment, “Mush” isolates the gruff between your toes, does not hide it, and confidently displays." - Girl Underground Music
"The track is full of that 90s grunge flavor and soars with anthemic emotion. At around the 2-minute mark, “Mush” has an insane break of build up fueled by riveting drums and soft vocal murmurs. It’s lovely, yet thrashing all at the same moment."- 'Mush" -Grimy Goods
