..."It would be heady praise indeed to invoke a comparison to the likes of Joni Mitchell, but Keating is an equally adept storyteller and the album, at its very core, is a collection of tales and musical metaphors that are as engaging as they are entertaining."...Marc Skulnick, Editor's Pick, Hamilton Magazine, 2018.
