"Relocating to New York, Mike Scott left behind his bog standard infatuation with Irish music and returned with this cracker that pushes a barrage of rock guitars and life affirming songs to the fore. Opener, 'The New Life', epitomised his new approach, whilst the wide-eyed rush of 'Glastonbury Song' and the mystical goofiness of 'Spiritual City', hinted at a new found spirituality. There's variety aplenty here, whether it be the country waltz of 'Corn Circles' or the feverish psychedelia of 'The Return of Jimi Hendrix'. Scott's an endearingly eccentric character with a vivid imagination. Keep on dreaming."
Lighter, brighter, and packed with energy.

"Dream Harder is a transition for Mike Scott and The Waterboys, a move beyond their heavy celtic phase and into something sounding a little more like pop. The hit single, The Glastonbury Song, is the heart of the album. Bursting with creativity and imagination, the song can only look forward. The New Life in a Spiritual City is clearly in sight here for The Waterboys. Their creative influences come to them in visions, and the "boys" introduce us to C.S. Lewis, Jimi Hendrix, and the pagan god Pan. Their music soars and, as always, the lyrics are poetry."
The Return Of Pan

"Pop music: what a fickle, bizarre universe. Just think of all the beautiful songs you have loved and forgotten. They lived for a moment in your excited consciousness, and then faded away.How many bands must come and go before the perfect song is written? Well, we all have a few candidates.I think Mike Scott captured it in "The Return Of Pan." It is elemental, rambunctious, Druidic, Bacchanalian, headbanging, and just plain cool. How many rock songs compare Greek legend with Christianity? Yeah, go ahead, start counting.I am reluctant to put on this music. "The Return Of Pan" always gets me amped up and dancing like some stupid hippie. Okay, maybe I am a stupid hippie.Thank you, Mike, for reminding me of what I knew before."
