"It appears that he has exorcised a few of his demons after the lonely pre-dawn lament of his first album, and he’s got stuff to say." - Shelley Gummeson, Earshot Magazine, Sept. 17/10

"Sounds like: Gordon Lightfoot, Bruce Cockburn, Jack Johnson" - Alan Cross, ExploreMusic.com, Sept. 27/10

"Pippus's second CD can't be labelled blues or tagged folk but it is earthy without also being retro... As varied as it is, humour and energy might be the album's unifying factor." - Tom Harrison, Province Newspaper, Aug. 15/10
