"I would call their sound "alternative rock-folk" although labeling doesn't really do them justice. I've owned this CD since 1995 and it is still a familiar selection to my CD player. The only sad thing about it is so few (actually none) of the people I meet have ever heard it.For collectors of music, this IMHO is essential."

"I guess this band would be classified as folk-rock or something like that, although I don't have much use for and can barely stomach such empty industry labels myself. But, this is to my knowledge their only album, and if you are looking it up chances are you don't have it and need something to go by. So folk-rock, and they do know how to rock. The band's obviously not the kind to go through life in a numbed haze, and that conscientiousness shows in the lyrics. Good stuff, sometimes cynical but never so cynical that the uplifting parts come off as preachy or saccharine. A friend told me the lead singer sounds like the love-child of Natalie Merchant and Eddie Vedder. (Another commercial ploy, I know, but she does sort of sound like that!) I also hate reviews that lump the band in with well-known others, but it has to be done: I could see you digging this if you liked Indigo Girls or Tracy Chapman...when they're slinging electrics and when they've hit a groove. So far I have managed to compromise myself to every cheap trick in the record-review handbook, and believe me I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think the band was worth it. What can I say: Its the feel-good Speeding On A Highway In The Great American West record of the year."
On my "Top 20" of the 90s List!

"I have a lot of CDs of all different genres but this sweet little album has managed it's way into my CD player more times in the past 6 years than 90% of the rest of my collection. It has really stuck with me. I know nothing about the band, I have never come across them again (I can't even remember how I first "discovered" the album!) but this is a very special record and well worth the money. "Look Up to the Sky" is breathtaking."
