"A song [Keep Me Waiting] that owes its soul to Tom Petty and Cheap Trick runs the risk of sounding purely corny these days. But Shupp, formerly of Big Bang Theory, has come up with a great chorus and truly passionate vocal delivery. He's leading a band that's played together for four years and it shows in the seamless arrangement..."
- Dave Marsh
Starpolish Critic's Corner
(Rollingstone Editor, Creem Magazine Founder)

"'The Key' shimmers even more appealingly than its predecessor... ringing guitars, high harmonies and heartbroken lyrics... buoyant songs as 'Head on Straight' and 'Right Through Me' compare well to the work of Shupp's models..."
- Mark Jenkins
The Washington Post

"...a blast of righteously rocking power pop..."
- Eric Brace
Washingtonpost.com Nightlife

"...a rocking and emotional gem, full of robust, hummable harmonies and multitracked guitars. Right out of the box, the album comes at the listener like a wall of rocking bliss, with tuneful rockers like 'Stranded' and 'Keep Me Waiting' mixed with more hypnotic and lush numbers like 'The Key' and 'My Life'..."
