'Crooked Mouth's music just shines with sincerity, originality and a genuine inspiration and often borders on magical...' - Vitaly Menshikov, ProgressoR

'A great debut this is music with heart, in more ways than one'  - Duncan Glenday, Progressive Ears

Steve Mourton (Classic Rock Society) gives the album the thumbs up in the May/June 2004 edition of Rock Society magazine, describing the album as a collection of '...songs of the highest quality...superb symphonic prog.'


'Crooked Mouth have their own sound and style but, as a general point of reference think of REM and, at times,perhaps a little bit of early Led Zeppelin. On all the songs the musicians get to shine. This is a very well performed and produced album, a treat for the ears' (Marc Roy, ProGGnosis)

'Musically we are in an area of carefully crafted, intelligently written songs, and with lyrics that are both attentive and observant...Particularly pleasing was the combination of Ken Haig's distinctive voice, set against the more delicate timbres of Lynne Campbell and Eilidh Swanson' (Bob Mulvey, Dutch Progressive Rock Pages)
