-John Oates, of Hall and Oates (full article here)

-Indie Shuffle (full article here)

not as kind words

"The vocal effects are too much. Can't seem to find the hook as well unfortunately."

-A Little Bit Louder! (about "Having Fun")

 

"I wasn't really connecting with the vocals / melodies."

-High Five For (about "Having Fun")

 

"...not in our sonic wheelhouse..."

-BalconyTV Cincinnati (about Ginger Root as a whole)

 

"I'm on the fence with this one. It's an ok tune but needs to be more soulful (needs some horns!). It's a bit one note.."

-The Revue (about "Call It Home")

 

"Felt like an '80s lounge tune with a familiar storyline. If it was more like a tune from an '80s coming-of-age movie, we might have been more interested."

-The Revue (about "Two Step")
