"This CD is excellent from start to finish, fusing traditional instrumentation with the contemporary, and generating a sound and mood that should satisfy both the traditional and the progressive listener. It is, without any reservation, one of the best independent releases that we have received - the kind you hope for but rarely get."
--Scott Ericson, Music Sojourn
"We totally dig this CD"
--Ben Johnston, Broadcast.com - CD JUKEBOX
