"I was thoroughly impressed by [Jack Connolly's] lyrical intelligence, musical ability, and . . . stage presence. Connolly's original compositions shine."

Toby Nilsson,Cosmic Debris, April 2002

"The 12-song disk moves seamlessly through [Connolly's] repertoire of stage-tested originals. . . with a pair of covers paying homage to influences Carlos Santana and blues legend Willie Dixon. Weaving his"folky/bluesy" style into what co-producer K. coined "acousti-pop" Connolly proves why he has garnered the kind of attention he has since sharing the stage with folk icon Valdy at the age of 12. The songs range from heart-wrenching ballads like "Sonny" to the straight ahead 12-bar blues number "(Who's Gonna) Clean Up This Mess?" Tunes like "Waiting for the Call" and "A Touch of Grace" show the song-smith's advanced ability to tell a good story delivered with confidence and control."
