"‘A stirring new voice... Son Of An American Dream’ by Bill Curreri is a rockin’ little record I want my DJ to play... If Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers made this exact album, it would be hailed coast to coast. If The Eagles made this exact album, it would also be hailed... What makes it all cool is that his observations are totally universal, his experiences mirroring his generation. I totally get this guy. He’s me. He’s you... Intelligent personal lyrics sung with creamy-sweet harmony... yet accentuated with a kick-ass band is always going to win me over."
"Mix in a little Steely Dan, some Gerry Rafferty with a touch of Dylan and The Byrds and you come away with an album that pops and rocks in all the right places... There’s so many cool cuts here for pop and rock fans to pick and choose from... State of the art 21st century jangle pop gets a solid transfusion with Bill Curreri’s Son Of An American Dream."
"‘Son Of An American Dream’ is comprised of ten excellently crafted songs by Curreri that reveals a level of songwriting that many his senior have yet to attain. One is struck by the easily identifiable musical influences... The Beatles... The Stones, Dylan and The Byrds and many, many other musical flavors with all drawing from Bill’s personal experiences over the years... (Keep) an eye on Bill Curreri because we think we’ll be hearing a lot about him in the future."
