“Armed with limber, near-acrobatic instrumentation and magnetic energy to spare, the members of The Ars Nova perform music that touches upon a venerable heritage of American genres - blues, funk, classic rock - but never overstays its welcome in any particular category. Though the interaction between all their instruments is key to the Ars Nova's excellent songwriting, Lovering's fiery licks cover major real estate on memorable cuts like on the crunchy shuffle of "Move Your Feet" or the toe-tapping barnstormer "Don't Move Too Slow." Sure, Ferm's passionate vocals and Petrucci and Battaglia's air-tight grooves may tip their hat to influences like the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Stevie Ray Vaughn, but to pigeonhole this band is to ignore their brilliant dynamics. Anytime there's a raucous, almost chaotic moment of splendor, you can point to a subdued, controlled lead-up that got them there.”
