“A sophisticated gem… totally inspiring”, in comparing Ants and Angels to “Ben Folds’ almost-as-good Rockin’ the Suburbs” review

“Murray’s effusive power pop exudes hooks aplenty but this ear candy also has a solid underbelly… Ants and Angels is a heavenly find.”
Lee Zimmerman, Entertainment News & Views (Miami, FL)

“Simply, seriously, one of the finest high-brow, sophisticated pop releases of 2006.”

Ants and Angels is consistently entertaining, ultra-musical, and a worthy addition to the Canadian power-pop canon.”
Don Breithaupt, author of Steely Dan’s Aja (part of the 33-1/3 series) and aka Monkeyhouse

Ants and Angels ist ein vielschichtiges Album voller Tiefe und Atmosphaere. Die Cleverness von Jason Falkner, Owsley unt XTC trifft auf die Emotionalitaet von Elliot Smith. Meisterwerk!!! 9 out of 10.”
Robert Pally, (Baer, Switzerland)

“This is Pop!”
