It is a remarkably good piece of work. It’s definitely rock but with a very soulful and funky edge…The mixture of original material and covers is just about right…all in all this is a fine album well worth further investigation

Steve Ward, Classic Rock Society (March 2004)

…a dynamite set whose contents wander through a clutch of tight Russell originals, and onto visionary covers of “The Clapping Song” and Stevie Wonder’s “Living For The City.” Five bonus tracks, meanwhile, include two distinctly alternate versions of “The Clapping Song,” and a terrific “groove mix” of the album’s “Sweet Surrender.”

Jo-Anne Greene, Goldmine (March 2004)

It is very much an album of its time, with jazz rubbing shoulders with orchestration…there are times…where Ray shows himself in an extremely positive light…

Feedback (June 2004)

If you are looking for some nice guitar, then look no further…Ray’s guitaring is a pleasure to listen to…there are 24 musicians in all contributing to this splendid music…Music to time travel to!
