"Years ago, I walked into a music store wanting to stock up on a few items. The man behind the counter placed this blue and red bubbly looking album cover on the playing now stand and what happened stopped me dead in my tracks. Suddenly, the most beautiful music started filling the store and I stood in a stunned silence, seduced by one of the most beautiful songs, ever composed; "Before you Go." I then bought Street Dreams and Lyle Mayes, two albums I never tire of. Over the years they evolved to tapes and then to CDs. But I must say that Street Dreams, particularly the previously mentioned cut and the title suite, "Street Dreams," are stellar. I had a wonderful moment when I played "Street Dreams" at the Stroke of Midnight On New Years about 10 years ago. My friends, even the ones not into jazz, LOVED it. To this day, I love this entire album, because it truly takes me to another place"

"Speaking as someone who loves the Pat Metheny Group and Lyle Mays' playing in general, I'd have to say that this CD is a mixed bag. Some might find it a bit cheesy or trite. But when Lyle gets into his serious soloing he really shines. Sometimes sounds like he doesn't know exactly what he's trying to do - he tries to mix different jazz idioms - big band, electronic, fusion, etc., with occassional success. I would recommend his first album over this, but this one is a good "minor" addition to any Metheny/Mays collection."
A Great modern Jazz album- Beautiful & Timeless

"Lyle Mays compositions are absolutely fabulous all albums are great.
The 2 first albums are similar in character and influence very beautiful modern jazz compositions. Lyle is supported playing with the greatest musicians. The other 2 more recent albums are quite different, yet very impressive work, in particular the "Fictionary"."
