“The sampler starts with 'Sleeping in' a mid tempo rock track with a laid back vibe reminiscent of the Stereophonics 'Have a nice day'.

To Believe shows this writer why O'Reilly is currently residing in the U.S., it's a AOR radio friendly track, well produced with a slight flavour of Dawson's Creek in there. 'Star Gazing', the final track of the sampler, is an acoustic based Cowboy-esque track, the lone ranger meeting his love match. The chorus of voices singing “Star Gazing' bring an extra depth to the track. It's quite a sit around the campfire singing song. My favourite on the sampler. All in all, its a good start, we'll have to wait for the rest of the album 5 out of 6 ”
