“AMAZING voice! Love the melody.... You sound so full of passion and expression! Love it! Thank You!”

“...the soundtrack music done by Hannu Lepisto, a young man with a voice.... Conquerors of the World is a beautiful ballad. (translation from Finnish)”

"Sounding like a cross between Bruce Cockburn, Lou Reed, Stan Rogers, and Brad Roberts, with some Jyrki Linnenkivi (The 69 Eyes) thrown in, Finnish singer-songwriter, Hannu Lepistö's 5 track solo debut EP ranges from Americana to dark rock - a strong effort that bears repeat listening..."

“Jo eka kuuntelukerta imaisi, hypnoottinen kitarakulku on tehokas ja tuo mieleen jotakin määrittelemätöntä, joka on aina ollut läsnä tällaisessa musiikissa... Useamman kuuntelukerran jälkeen olen aivan biisi lumoissa! [Even listening (to Hannu's song 'There Is An Angel For Everyone') for the first time I was sucked in by the powerful hypnotic guitar passage which reminds me of something indefinable, which is always present in such music ... I'm just fascinated by the song and wish to spend more time listening to it.]”
