"Americana with attitude, vision, and plenty of gummy pop harmonies to shake a stick at. Nice formula that sounds like what would happen if Springsteen had decided to explore the indie route."
“Ferrelle has produced a record that captures a familiar American rock sound yet manages to convey the mood of the times. His guitar playing is admirable, his talent obvious and as distinctive as his voice.”
“Dodd's voice is slightly haunting, yet still very accessible--in other words, perfect for the genre--and the instrumentation on LP is nice, incorporating pedal steel, horns and, on "Life's a Dream," a perfectly eerie accompaniment: the saw. Check out "Miss Bliss" and "Gardens Disappear."”
"The album is a consistently fine listen, and it's littered with real gems. "I Can't Wait" is a near-perfect synthesis of everything that makes pop music great....This is an album that deserves a wide listen. Recommended."
“Building on his Murder of Love CD, Dodd Ferrelle has released Lonely Parades, often sounding like early REM but with a little more twang and a lot more heart. Highlights for me are "Miss Bliss," "If You Could Live Another Life..," and "What's Another Broken Heart?" ”
