Quotes and Excerpts from Reviews
First things first, this is a blindingly good album. "Neighborhood Noir''"
is roots rock at it''s absolute finest....to reiterate, a hidden gem which can be unearthed at https://www.tradebit.com. John Lonergan-Revolutions Magazine, London England
Entertaining music, thought provoking lyrics, with an honest look at contemporary issues. Mike Kennedy, DJ -WYCE-88.1 FM (GR)
Dear LT''s, thanks for sending your most excellent "Neighborhood Noir''" CD. My highest compliments towards these lyrics...class insight and depth.
Eddie Russell, DJ -Columbus, Texas
Your new CD just came in. I gave it a couple of spins and I want you to know I love it. I played it for our producer and he went nuts.
Dani Heyvaert, Leopolsburg, Belgium Lokale Radio 103.1 FM.
The band has assembled a bracing, emotionally dark gem with this album...
A delectable feast and one of the best local albums to hit West Michigan in years.....3 ½ stars of 4, John Sinkevics-Grand Rapids Press
This articulate, grippingly unhinged trio plays what it describes as Original Rural Rock...not to mention the burdens of being in an ornery/independent country tinged rant band ... hopefully this impassioned, self-made CD will resound past geographical and cultural boundaries. 4 Stars- Bob Strauss-LA Daily News
Just received your package, after listening to it, I must say you did a great job again. Listening to your two CD''s I can see what a talented band you are. Ray Elly- Rootstown News, Belgium
We reviewed your album and spun a cut last night, good stuff, we''ll definitely play deeper into the CD. Douglas Neal, Progressive Torch and Twang, WDBM-FM, Lansing, MI
"A Mayberry boy in a Melrose world" sings DVZ on this CD''s opening song and it nicely describes this Michigan band. This is gimmick free roots- rock whose writing pens well drawn tales that live up to the albums title. Miles of Music- North Hollywood CA
