“Twin Cities rocker Brian Cristofono flirted with rock stardom in the late '90s and early '00s with the Drive, which briefly blew up in Europe. He's back with a solo album that still sounds rock-starry and 15 years ago, a polished Brit-poppy set that (no slam) aimed more at listeners of K-Twin FM than 89.3 the Current. It features Michael Bland on drums and Drive bassist Jeff Ringate, a survivor of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse. Riemenschneider”

“Brian Cristofono's 6-song Before You Go EP is full of standard-fare power pop, but the songs are well-constructed and tightly recorded, with upbeat melodies and catchy guitar hooks. Try "Photographs and Memories" or "Copy of Love".”
