"Before there was an aty-country/bluegrass movement in Philly-hell,before the term alt-country was invented-there were the Rolling Hayseeds."
Brian Howard-Philadelphia City Paper 12/99
"On(No Place Like Home)...Kaufmann makes an assured pop play with the sublime 'It's Starting To Show' and the smart,snappy'Guess Who's Lying?'. And multi-instrumentalist Karg displays an arsenal of Waylon Jennings tough-country moves, shown to best effect on the elaborate. muscular 'Fat Chance.'
Dan DeLuca-Philadelphia Inquirer 10/99
"...with efforts this fine,they might still make the city-and possibly the world-sit up and take notice."
Ramsey Pennypacker-Philadelphia Weekly 12/99
"Anchored by Kaufmann's uncanney Top-40 instincts,Karg's best singing(see Woolly Thinking) and songs(see 'Fat Chance',Another Day')yet, and a bracing,windswept rendition of' Home Sweet Home' (Revisited), the album feels less like a fussed-over epitaph than a wide open stab at a new beginning-as it should."
Hobart Rowland-Philadelphia Weekly 10/99
"Kaufmann, along with fellow frontman Kevin Karg fuse their reckless sense of despair with rollicking tunes and carefully -crafted tunes."
Rachel Leibrock-Country Standard Time 2/00
"...this review is going to basically concentrate on one song-the magnificient opening 'Its Starting to Show'...it's tough to get past the sheer brilliance of that first track."
Kevin Mathews Power of Pop.com 6/00
"Manly voices,guitars played at the bottom of the neck,a strong touch of soul,a nod to 70's country-pop,and even a lap steel break that sounds like a tribute to Red Rhodes.All major plusses."
Chris Nickson-Folk Roots Mag(UK)
"The showpiece of 'No Place Like Home' though, is the extraordinary opener, 'It's Starting to Show.' With the aid of ex-A's honcho Rocco Notte (on organ, Moog, and chicken-skin harmonica), the Rolling Hayseeds build a lush,countrified power-pop anthem that would have been a jewel for Jules Shear's late, lamented Polar Bears."
