"“Mockingbird” carries heavy influences of old western music, stirring up sounds influenced by everything from George Strait and Randy Travis to The Allman Brothers."
"While many of the most successful artists in the country realm are making a mockery of the traditions and sounds, Mike and the Moonpies are singing their praises, and the rest of us should be singing the praises of Mockingbird as one of the strongest authentic country efforts released this year."
"These guys aren’t trying to be country; these guys aren’t “doing a country album”. They are just writing about what they know, and doing what they love….and it just so happens to be damn good country music!"
""Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," a tune just as likely to get cut in contemporary Texas as in the Seventies Rust Belt."
