"New Yorker Mike Rimbaud, a politically and socially engaged singer–songwriter, unveiled a new batch of topical songs at Bowery Electric, singing about our town circa 2015. Put That Dream In Your Pipe And Smoke It is Mike Rimbaud’s new disc."  Eric Holland, New York 1 TV

"Mike Rimbaud: The Closest Thing to the Clash That NYC Has Right Now: "Much like Ward White, Mike Rimbaud has quietly and methodically built a vast catalog of wickedly smart, catchy, relevant lyrical rock songs. Where White has drawn on janglerock, Americana, chamber pop and most recently, an artsy glam sound, Rimbaud looks back to new wave and punk, but also to reggae, and jazz, and Phil Ochs. White’s narratives are elusive to the extreme; Rimbaud’s are disarmingly direct, with a savagely spot-on political sensibility. A strong case could be made that no other New York artist represents this city’s defiantly populist past – or, one hopes, its future – more than Mike Rimbaud. He's playing the release for his characteristically excoriating new one, Put That Dream in Your Pipe and Smoke It. Rimbaud has never sung better than he does here. Where he used to snarl, he's more likely to croon these days, which is somewhat ironic considering how much unbridled wrath there is in thes"  delarue, New York Music Daily

"let me introduce you and let's go deep with Mike Rimbaud. I can tell you that his tone is really sultry and sexy, and that applies to him speaking and singing. Add to that, the fact that he really writes from a deep place within, and you've just began to scratch the surface of this mysterious multi- talented artist. SET: Mike, you have an almost underground cult following here in the city. For those who aren't in the know already; how would you sum up your musical style and message? MIKE: I write rock 'n roll songs that will make you move, not only dance, but make you think. I'm constantly entertaining issues most songwriters would totally avoid."  Susan Turner, Set in The City
