"There are a lot of grinding, catchy guitar riffs as well as some stellar, tasteful solos" - Richard Amery, L.A Beat Editor

"Lyrically and Instrumentally refreshing is perhaps the best way I can describe Tim Bastmeyer's new release" - John Vermilyea, Blues Underground Network

"Bastmeyer’s greatest strength on this album is when he lets an instrument take a solo part. His instrumental sound is clean and seamless, each instrument playing its part when they perform as an ensemble. This results in a tight finished product, showcasing the expertise of the musicians" - Sarah Richmond, Blues Rock Review

" A True Talent" - Andrew Galloway, Electro-fi Records
