“The performance, although it is quickly approaching ten-years-old, is serving as a timeless classic at one of the most iconic music venues on Dublin’s music circuit.” - Antony Bailey
“The music of this Irish band certainly falls under roots rock, but then Irish roots rock. So you are dealing here with powerful, intense folky rock. A great atmospheric live album by the Ben Reel Band.” - Peter Marinus
