"There’s a certain strength that builds & builds without fault as the whole thing moves along, so much so that this intense & passionate moment of fast-paced lyricism & distortion on top of delicacy explodes at the final corner, then everything falls away."

“The Other Side is an important project in its own right. The song was initially written as a reaction to the Orlando shootings from earlier this year, but in essence, the track speaks out against the issue of intolerance across the world; it’s about equal rights, and working towards a better and more caring humanity.”

“The true power of the song and video as a complete piece of art is inherently clear, even as someone who has never visited Oxgangs, I found myself soaked in my own thoughts of childhood life as I watched and listened..”

“Integrated approach helps to highlight abstract-inspired art.”

“The Scottish folk-pop singer, Kathy Muir, adds a talented repertoire of country-pop guitar songs with an equal element of roots, blues, and rock. With a voice like Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin, and Stevie Nicks, Kathy comes through with flying colors and equally-airborne riffs. "Fairytale Lies" is a fitting song with Stevie Nicks' signature all over it, but it is inherently Kathy Muir all the way. The steel, slide guitar opening matches the upbeat tambourine and percussion kit with a rhythmic voice and catchy melody. "You Surround Me" opens with a pensive piano melody with accompanying strings that do not include percussion until mid-song. The song is void of vocals, but it is reminiscent of a lighter incarnation of something from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. "Heaven In Your Eyes" is a folksy song with a bluesy presence and chilling percussion, guitars, and vocals. "Sweet and Easy" is a breezy, folk song with light pop elements that are jazzy and easy to listen to.”
