"...He manipulates the tunes’ original tempos, meters, rhythms, harmonies, and/or melodies in inventive ways that...result in fresh and interesting first-class Jazz...Luer is a superb Michael Brecker-influenced tenorist. His beautiful sound is similar to Brecker’s, as are his general approach and mannerisms. And his formidable technique allows him to execute even the most challenging passages. Speaking of which, the virtuosic tenor/ guitar unison passage on Coldplay’s “Clocks” is remarkable for its accuracy...Andrew Synowiec also plays fine mainstream Jazz guitar on such tracks as Luer’s “You Should Have Known,” but solos effectively with a distorted Rock sound on the leader’s Steps Ahead-suggesting “Mind the Gap.”... Andy Langham impresses...and drummer Dan Schnelle and bassist Edwin Livingston, required to provide a variety of rhythmic and percussive backgrounds,do so with élan, including the latter’s tuneful bowed solo on Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.
