"If Tim set out to reveal more about himself and be vulnerable on his new CD, Scatterbrain, he succeeded. He pulls off the delicate trick of turning inward without losing his persona. He is still The Reverend. Now, rather than pointing the finger at others, he’s pointing it at himself. Instead of looking at obscure news stories and making them universal, he takes something universal, the birth of a child, and makes it his (and his wife’s, lest we forget). It’s smart and fearless. Mr. Hicks, this is Mr. Cosby."
"On "Scatterbrain," McIntire addresses the ups and downs of a working comic's life. The bulk of the album is all laughs -- solid material on everything from having kids to the war on terror, killer stuff from one of Boston's most reliable comedy veterans -- but it's the bonus track, the one labeled "Nagasaki," that's getting the most attention. The nearly half-hour track is nothing short of a complete hell gig..."
The Boston Globe, April 13, 2006
"'Scatterbrain' is a brilliant and hilarious piece of work. But with Tim McIntire that is to be expected. With his inclusion of 'Nagasaki,' Tim has demonstrated to the Bush regime both how to get out in front of a story and why only innocents, at risk to harm from exposure, should be allowed to declassify information about themselves."

"Any discussion of Boston's new comedy talent begins and ends with Tim McIntire. He's sharp, insightful, smart, energetic, prolific, respected, and revolutionary...he's simply the real deal. Buy this CD and brag that you were into Tim McIntire before the rest of the world caught up!"
