"Cavalcade is an ode in its own right—a warm-hearted tribute to some of the city’s most accomplished musicians, and a great way for curious audiences to sample the Island’s sexiest exports." - The Martlet
"Cavalcade of the Scars shows that, at least in the case of Victoria, this kind of artistic incest can lead to some amazingly beautiful musical moments. Witness Dante Decaro (of the decidedly non-folk Hot Hot Heat and Wolf Parade) playing an authentic, irony-free, foot-stomping country rag, appearing on the same album as the surprisingly catchy middle-aged folkies Children of Celebrities. Other highlights include Hearse’s “Bonnie Parker,” a dark, accordion-fueled torch song, and Hank & Lily’s bluesy, trash-rock ode “David Hasselhoff.” Granted, I don’t really know a whole lot about this type of music, but after even a cursory listen to Cavalcade, I’m just about ready to dust off my boots, buy some cheap whiskey and hop the first train (or, you know, boat) to Victoria." - Vue Weekly
