“ Through the Glass is long-time Austin singer Penny Jo Pullus' fifth CD, and is a mix of roots and pop-don't call her a country chick singer, because she's not-featuring a mix of 11 of her own and others' songs. The old-time R&B – based "When the Battle is Over" wonders who will wear the crown once the dust clears on a relationship. It's a fine duet with Jimmy LaFave, who, befitting the song, sounds a bit funkier than usual Pullus also duets with Will Sexton on another hard relationship song "Give Back the Key to My Heart." Other highlights include "Baby Please," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Dead Flowers." In addition to LaFave and Sexton, collaborators include co-producer Ron Flynt and pedigreed musicians Ian McLagan, Eric Hisaw, Warren Hood, Shelley King, John Bush, Matt Giles, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Chip Dolan and Cleve Hattersley. ”

“Her country roots coming shining on one of the original tunes, “Nowhere To Go.” With the help of great musicians like Will Sexton, Ian McLagan and John Bush to name a few, Penny Jo is able to concentrate more on her vocals as she delivers country versions of The Beatles’ “Every Little Thing” and Dusty Springfield’s “Son Of A Preacher Man.” The album closes with a “spot on” rendition of the Rolling’s Stones’ “Dead Flowers.” ”

“ Penny Jo Pullus–Through the Glass: Joining Pullus on her fifth release is Ian McLagan, Jimmy LaFave, Eric Hisaw, Warren Hood, Shelley King, John Bush, Will Sexton, Matt Giles, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Chip Dolan and Cleve Hattersley. She puts out an album with a heady combination of roots and pop, paying homage to Roseanne Cash and Lucinda Williams along the way. 4.0 McRiprock’s ”

“ Through The Glass, the latest release from Austinite Penny Jo Pullus, is exactly what we’ve come to expect from the versatile songstress. Grit, truth, and even sweet-toned pop sensibilities, all wrapped in the roots of country and rock with lyrics that you can dig your teeth (and your soul) into and taste the flavor of life’s heartaches and triumphs.”

“A dozen years of living in the thriving musical hive of Austin, Texas, obviously have agreed with Penny Jo Pulls...With the help of producer Ron Flint, from power-pop band 20/20,Pullus tackles Brian Setzer's hip "Knife Feels Like Justice," Anny Celsi's edgy "Little Black Dress" and Tom Gillam's deep "We Don't Have to Go Home." The best of her originals include the big beat love song "This Time, Next Time," in which she holds onto the hope and lyrics at the same time... ”

“Great album title... and a great country rocking CD ... She can rock and "Knife Feels Like Justice" is a cracking opening track, but she can also sing the blues with feeling and this is highlighted on the lovely country blues "Lord Help Me".  The Faces Ian McLagan is featured on the album, and none more so on the spirited, feisty rocker "This Time, Next Time".  She played in the UK in 2003, I can't wait to see her tour on the back of this great album.”

“While she does well opening with Brian Setzer's "Knife Feels Like Justice," Pullus' songs "Chimayo" and "This Time, Next Time" are powerful statements on their own, blending Pullus' roots-rock tendencies with her love for old AM radio on hand-clapping tunes like "Little Black Dress."”
