"The album also incorporates diverse instrumentation, like the strings that flit through “No Better Time Than Now” and add gravity to the dramatic strains of “Sanctified Music.” The few vocal tracks are also welcome respites from the instrumental indulgence. Bowden embellishes the blues-rock number “Done and Over” with a droll delivery, and “Sanctified Music” features a fine octave-unison delivery from he and Suzanna Liming, (who’s known professionally in the Boston area as “Zanna”). Beyond the teachings that he offers his students, Bowden has perhaps given the aspiring guitarists a larger lesson with No Better Time Than Now. They can surely learn something here about perfecting technique, playing with joy, and putting their best foot forward in the recording studio."
"The sharpness and power of each original composition is captivating and impressive.... ". "Blues that sometimes rocks and always showcases Dan’s beautiful guitar tone and tasty licks. It’s good music for the summer. "
