“What The Talismen do is interpret the mid-60s Beatles' sound and ethos, and craft very engaging original tunes that spread "The Word" in style. One can't help but see Lucy in the sky when visiting this page. Oh, and by the way, guys, you did pass the audition (quite).;)”

The Black Rose - Reverbnation

“I must have went to heaven. Uncanny! "Color Of Love," "Talisman" and "Love Forever" capture the essence of the Fab's "Rubber Soul/Revolver" period perfectly. Great vocal harmonies, Macca's melodic lead bass, the iconic guitar sound, the arrangements, production...and more. It's all there, and totally original songs to boot. An astounding achievement, Paul and Chris. Bonus: the historic 60s-style artwork is groovy.;) ”
