"I bought this because Pete Searcy fronted Squirrel Bait, a great mid-80-'s band that at the time was compared to Husker Du and The Replacements. In fact, at the time, Searcy was called the best voice in rock other than Paul Westerberg (! ). Searcy's current sound is slick power pop, not unlike the Goo Goo Dools or Tal Bachman. This isn't all bad--sometimes the hooks are there and the songs work (see "Furniture," "Hateful," and "Ceiling Stars"). Overall, enough good songs to make it worth buying.One major improvement would be for Pete to rasp out his voice a little, like in the old days. The ultra-polished vocal sound he goes for here detracts from the songs, which at their best really are like Westerberg, and deserve a more gritty, soulful treatment."

"Peter's debut for Time Bomb Records, is the essence of what great music is all about. Beautiful and poetic...music that is straight from the heart and soul. Peter's haunting and wonderful voice and guitar talents only leave you wanting more and make you put the album on repeat for days on end."
Great new artist!

"I just saw Peter live last night and he was awesome! He was opening for Blessid Union of Souls and I enjoyed him as much as the headliners. His songs are filled with poetry and soul and he's also a really nice guy. (talked to him after the show) I have been listening to the cd almost constantly since i bought it last night. I especially enjoy the tracks Invent, Broken, and Could You Please and Thank You."
