Album Notes
First song on his EP is about selling out to music and movie moguls in Los Angeles, but its riffs and/or hooks can be traced back to the Raspberries and Mott the Hoople. -Village Voice 

On Age/Occupation (Meticulous), Ari Shine plays sunny songs spiked with punk (the Elvis Costello wing of it) and power pop. -Time Out NYC 

"Age/Occupation" is a big hooky event with pulsing guitars, armies of vocal harmonies and pumping rhythms. It`s filled with gonzo driving guitars that knife up the hook levels to maximum and just does not stop, with the end of the mini-CD leaving you excited for a bright future for Ari Shine. -Not Lame 

…a warm and friendly radio mix, but the guitars still crunch and howl. -Rhapsody 

Simply put: he’s added an integral chapter to the book of modern pop rock. Listen with a fine-tuned ear, and you’ll agree. Rating: 10/10 -Mammoth Press

Ari Shine manages to create a thoroughly modern rock sound with driving melodies. This is a very promising debut. –Whitsbrain

The pefect combination of pop and rock. A little taste of LA in one nice 6 song package. Highly recommended.
-Bruise Magazine

This is pop music at it’s most savvy: a stunning blend of humor, wit and catharsis that I smesmerizing upon first listen and begins to feel like an old friend after a few more.
-John Getze EQ Magazine

Shine’s solo EP Age/Occupation is beautiful. Furthermore, the EP has achieved an unprecedented level of critical acclaim for a debut.
-AZ Star

Ep of the day Now here's an impressive debut.
