From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars More fun and fresh music from AltrOck Productions. These songs are much more straightforward folk/jazz--there's a 1940s/50s feel to this music--and clever English lyrics and quirky vocal presentations in the vein of Continent-lover Cole Porter and Brit Porter-lover Joe Jackson. Also a bit of a Rockabilly feel of the music la Stray Cats. Fun but, like Rockabilly, not for everybody, so adventure into this album with an open mind and open heart, prepare to be entertained and surprised while at the same time given a twinge of nostalgia. Excellent songwriting which reminds one that "they just don't write songs the way they used." Except, here there are some!

3.5 stars rated down ("good, but non-essential") because this music will not be everyone's cup of tea. If you like flamboyant, Porter-esque, Broadway show tunes, definitely check this out. Fans of Edgar Winter, The Cardiacs, Paul Weller, and Frank Zappa will probably enjoy this a lot.
