Brian Weidy of IX Daily’s reviewed the album, writing, "The Como Brothers Band excels on their debut".   
 
Joshua Smotherman of Middle Tennessee Music writes, “Baby Steps includes track after track of grade A++ quality songwriting, musicianship, and originality”.  
 
James Wilson of My Random Jukebox speaks of Matt and Andrew’s songwriting abilities, stating, “How the music is put together alongside the catchy lyrics is a credit to their songwriting ability (which I think is their biggest talent)”.   
 
I Am Entertainment Magazine claims, “It’s just a matter of time before these guys explode into the mainstream”.
Indie It Press “To say the least, this indie band is taking indie listeners and many mainstream pop fans by storm.With a clean look and sound like Michael Buble, the Como Brothers still have their own unique tone and songwriting quality to them that is garnering some much deserved attention. Mix in some of The Black Keys rhythm and you come up with a rare compilation of music in Baby Steps that is The Como Brothers Band.”
