“The Abstract Truff: a phrase which has now become synonymous with funk. Although there are elements of jazz, hip hop, rock, and electronic that run throughout it's modernized and experimental framework, it's essence is that of funk....pure, base thumpin', guitar lickin', booty shakin' funk...Magneto Funk. Can you dig it?........I KNEW that you could.”
“As per usual (The Abstract Truff is) stellar. A most excellent production. Every part of the song is completely in the pocket. Nothing has been wasted. This is how a great song is put together. From stem to sternum. How do (The Flobe) do it? What's (da boi's) secret? In any event it is a tapestry weaved by masterful minds and hands. I am amazed everytime... Another great masterpiece...”

“Absract tuff love it! Another great testament to (The Flobe's) diversity and talent. A Classy track with a smooth vibe and feel, like the mix of the instruments played so well..”
“What a pleasant surpise. I'm used to the ambient
electronic/funk/latin/soul/jazz that has come to characterize (The Flobe's) sound. Instead, what I'm hearing in "The Flobehead Lullaby" is a Ron Wood-ish Freewheeling' Predominantly Acoustic Gem. I say predominantly, because towards the ending refrains it appears to transform into the traditional Flobian dreamlike state. Guess what I learned from it all is what I should've known already when it comes to The Magneto Flobe...Expect the Unexpected. Great job...”
“Flobehead lullaby, great song showing yet again the diversity of colors/style and musicality , awesome vocals that are smooth and distinct with the delivery and positive message. Always a joy to listen to (The Flobe) great band!!”

“Derek?! Derek!!! Oh yes. . .there's no sleeping before i listen to this one :) Very sweet new tune by Howard & you. Taking 'The Flobehead Lullaby' into my eve...”
Midwestern Playboy Magazine
“Lullaby workin... That there's some serious Cherry Garcia. Sounds like layin' on my back in the summer sun surrounded by furry animals. Aiiight.”
“Let all Flobeheads zone to the soothing sounds of The Flobehead Lullaby... lyrics are classic (Howard Lawrence). It may sound cliche, but I must say- "Sweet dreams are made of this"!”
The Texas Tornado Times Tribune
“Another gem from Magneto Flobe, "Flobehead Lullaby"! More entertaining music from the best Americana band east of the Mississip!”
Best Americana West Magazine
“The Magneto Flobe (are) hitting on "Country Music" with their lovely song Flobehead Lullaby ::::))) I love that (The Flobe) do it with (their) own flavor and (their) own style. FEELS LIKE (the) FRESH SMELL OF THE SEA TO ME...”

"The Flobehead Lullaby" is a great little sing along drinking kind of song!!! It's got me singing along!!!
Down Beat Magazine
“...'Curtains' - Another genuine piece from Magnet Derek and his Merry Band of Fellows! I love the simple arrangements that allow the performance to connect so much to the listener...”
The Hooligan Press
“i love this song 'curtains' (a cover of ole elts)-your version has a really john lennon vibe to it.BRILLIANT!!!”
The Wiffle Tree Daily
“Believe it or not, I had never heard (Curtains) before. I knew it had a very British feel to it, but I had to google it to find out it was an Elton John cover. I have to agree with an earlier comment...it sounds very Lennon, which is something that's hard for me to resist. I fell in love with the mood immediately. Another job well done MF...I can see the lighters flickering during a standing O at the end of the song.”
"Curtains", such a touching song - I love the warm quivering sound, the thrilling vocals are awesome, yes, you night think of lennon, but at the same time the late 70s dylan crying with rage & emotion. Beautiful percussions!
La Paella Valenciana
“Curtains is KILLER LIVE FLOBE, man!!! GREAT track from the archives!!”
“Hey Flobies, CURTAINS is my absolute favorite track. This is more than just a cover, it is a revival of John Lennon. Fantastic song and awesome vocals...”
Spanish Bad Culo Magazine
"Curtains" ... a wonderful Song. Love the vocals and especially the way the song builds so carefully up to the end and slows down again. (it) very well deserves applause at the very finale :)
Applause as the final curtain. That makes sense to me...
Thank you for the music, Derek and friends...
The Duckledorff 709 Express
"Curtains" had me hooked. Great lyrics and a very pleasant overall sound that was all very nicely Flobish...
Great Songwriter Weekly
"Curtains" made me dive deeper into my thoughts and then as the song goes on, I sort of disappeared and only my thoughts were left. I think this is a good song for hypnosis, Flobe::::::))))
The Jerusalem Post
“Live At Budokan...Curtains is pure melancholy bliss! Love how (The Flobe) can make me feel like partying with Zip It Up, then make me reflective with a gem like this! "oh, ohhh, oh...”
The Nashville Black Cat
“Absolutely captivated by the Lennon-esque "Curtains!" (da boi) really captured a magical moment...”
"Curtains" has such a melancholy, mellow vibe going on that it instantly draws you in, and makes you reminisce over past memories, inspiring...
The Ohio Player
"Curtains" is so amazing. I can't believe it's live. Sounds so studio perfect. Great talent... Always impressed!
Down Beat Magazine
"Curtains (Live At Budokan #4)" is a psychedelic folk soul gem of the highest order. Forget Bob and Cheap Trick this is the best track to wear the Budokan label...
Rolling Stoned Magazine
“If Bacharach and David wore tie-dye and danced around with flowers in their hair they might have liked to have come up with The Flobe's "Lil Angel."”
The Mars Excursion Primer
“(The Magneto Flobe's) music should be time capsuled as the embodiment of mankind's finest Rock/Americana/Psych sounds and how they are ideally meant to feel. What (they've) created here is a celebration of music and culture. Sounds a grand thing to say, but I'm being sincere. The whole list flows effortlessly together (okay, I've not heard all 66 yet, but will, because, not to finish this particular ongoing trip would be just plain silly). Superb!”
The Potter's Field Quarterly
“(The Magneto Flobe) should be so proud of (their) new song "Lil Angel", it sounds so so nice, beautiful arrangement, touching lyrics and tender, heartfelt vocals, really love this new one! (The Flobe) have such a musical connection it seems like this comes easy for (them) so much talent!!”
“Lil Angel ... musically a treat. Touching words and Throdgie deluxe performance. A wonderful slow intro and the jazzy piano outro is as cool. What a great first and fully flobish way to start the year, Derek, Throdge, Tom & friends...”
The Duckledorffian Daily Diary
“Kickin' off 2014 with one of (the Magneto Flobe's) strongest suits ("Lil Angel")...a heart wrenching ballad...one with all the elements that made This Way Again such a masterpiece: a storyline filled with an angst and melancholy that unfortunately, too many of us can relate to, combined with a hauntingly beautiful melody, and superb instrumental embellishments throughout. Funny how despite the pain that your lil angel has inflicted, you can still manage to show the strength, understanding, and compassion to offer the option of friendship. True love indeed...selfless...”
“LIL ANGEL... beginning with the beautiful intro and leading into the wonderful vocal harmonies...I think (The Flobe) have another winner! Great song!”
The Hello Dolly Polliwog
“G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S...Lil Angel Is delivered by the best team of musicians! Throdgie baby vocals give me chills! Producer Derek produced a gem! I'm hitting the play button again!!!”
The Nashville Centurion
“Lil Angel is a great effective and sad love song, that is written very well, and works very well with great music to send it soaring!”
"Lil Angel" ... ...(The Flobe have) pulled off a right little gem here. Great work...the song is both melodically and lyrically strong.."Sometimes the world can spin around too fast"...a great Flobe around the globe line! Very good vocals...in fact very good everything!
The Songwriter's Studio Review
“Lil ANGEL, so. So beautifully composed from the ease of the wonderful piano and the melody is heartfelt and the vocals and harmonies are a brilliant love this song and will share it on my face book page so all can hear . Again (The Flobe) always manage to beat to (their) own drum and rise to the occasion , bless (them)...”
Cool Chick Quarterly
“On behalf of all the Roosterfarians let me say just how freakin' cool (The Flobe's) latest (Lil Angel) tune is. It evokes mellow, good vibrations... like a warm summer breeze; it's just what this cat needed on a cold winter day. Let all Flobeheads rejoice!”
The Daily Roosterfarian
“What a nice holiday treat, (From The Flobes) ... speadin' (the) Christmas cheer with "It's Christmas Eve." Although I don't think I'll have a chance to see the snow down here, I will certainly be dippin' into the sherry sooner than later. The battles have been fought and the presents have been bought...time to sit back and enjoy the view.”
"(It's) Christmas Eve"... beautiful song with great vocals and original style as always... (The Flobe) never disappoint!. Touching ending reminding us all that within everyone there still remains the child... during Christmas..Thank you for this gift of a song...
The Beautiful Dreamer
"IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE" ...fantastic, ambient, which remind on some songs of THE BEATLES...yes, this is compliment and true :-)...
