"Loving the album .. There's nothing on the CD that I don't like and I'll be listening again - and again .. It's going on my iPod. THANK YOU" - Paul Kean of TOY LOVE
"Alan, this CD is fantastic. I've had it in my car for the last week, playing over and over. I've heard every track about 8 times now. I loved seeing Toy Love live, and will always compare covers of their songs to the originals. But as you said, their music really lends itself to reinterpretation and most of these covers, covering a huge range of musical styles, are even 'better' than the originals. And they flow really well from one track to the next. Fantastic job." - Jonathan Jamrag of PROUD SCUM
