“Kris Hansen defied death; somehow, he’s lived to tell about it. Actually, he spends more time singing about it. Hansen has experienced an artistic rebirth, a burst of creativity, as if he’s trying to make up for all the writing time he’s missed. It’s a musical jacquard of styles, from breezy, jazzy, and psyche pop to folk, roots, and classic rock.” — Bob Gulla – The Providence Pheonix
