"No offense to the Lady Ga-Ga’s out there, but Adrian’s music is the sort I’d like to hear when I turn on my radio. His songwriting is fluid, brilliant, not tweaked to death or over produced. It’s complex and lovely and brings to mind a time when songwriters flooded the airwaves and all was well."
“His music speaks to another time in pop songwriting. Lush with strings, angelic harmonies and melodies that swoop and soar like a hook-laden roller coaster, this is classic Beatles pop with a modern edge.”
"Among the finest post-Beatles pop tunes I’ve ever heard."
“There's as much C.S. Lewis as there is Simon and Garfunkel in this Californian's airy, dreamy folk-laced sound. He's a wide-eyed six-year-old boy trapped inside an twenty-something pop-genius's body.”
"Proving to be a multi-talented singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Adrian Bourgeois is a name to remember, and his album, something to behold."
"Trust me on this: The record is absolutely brilliant."
"Clown Review" follows, a stunningly beautiful track that channels both Elliott Smith and Michael Penn. "Juniper" is a Beatlesque delight in the vein of the more sublime moments of The White Album and Abbey Road ("Because" in particular)."
“The very Todd Rundgren-like "Silk from Ashes" picks up the tone with great melodic chorus and those fabulous "do-do-do" backing vocals. "Melt in My Mind" continues the chord twisting theatrics with a full horn section and organ solos, that recall the best of Ben Folds.”
"His plaintive, inviting voice intoxicates, filling the listener with the beautiful arrangements and Bourgeois’s easy cadence makes for an inviting introduction on this debut --- yet it`s the slow, urgent, unfolding melodies that shine, shine, shine and are impossible to miss."
"His songs possess a remarkable melodic confidence--just when a tune has ingratiated itself into your memory...the melody sweeps upward, turning and dancing in that unpredictable way that a flock of birds does when it moves toward the sun."
"…new and literate pop songs for all of us to marvel at."
"The entire album has a very mature, post-Beatles pop sound, which is surprising considering how young Adrian is (he's just 20 years old). The future is bright indeed for this pop star in waiting."
