"I can't possibly describe the hours of pleasure that "Mavericks" and other Holsapple/Stamey efforts have brought me. I listen to this album, along with all my "dB's" albums, frequently. Time never diminishes the dead-on lyrics, the amazing hooks, the wit, and the feeling that you'd love to hang out with Peter Holsapple because he's a really talented, normal, grounded individual. I realize this is more of a general review of these artists, but they make the world a much better place in which to live. Truly, I'm not exaggerating. For the unenlightened, do yourselves a big favor and LISTEN TO THESE GUYS!"

"The first six tracks of this album are nothing short of fabulous original songwriting. Stamey and Holsapple definitely compliment one another, with Holsapple's melancholy, tuneful pieces balanced by Stamey's driving pop/rock sensibility. The duo harmonizes seamlessly, and the album seems produced and assembled with great, introspective vision. It's a shame their collaboration seems to have ended here. Holsapple's solo work tries but mostly misses, while Stamey went on to put out a fantastic somewhat Beatlesque album "Fireworks" which contains one of pop's greatest songs "Something Came Over Me." We just haven't heard from him in a while. Mavericks is an unsung and in many ways solitary classic."
Beautiful love and mischief

"This album is simply priceless if you enjoy lyrics with soul and guitars with passion. With this acoustic masterpiece, these singers bare their passions of both love, relationships, and the stark reality of both. You will never forget these songs."
