"The former Big Bang Theory guitarist has just released his third solo album, This Time, and it's a killer. ...his songwriting is unpretentious and straightforward, almost transparent... hooks come easy, are unforced and populate each tune-from the title track, with its declarative power chord opening, to "Another Life," "Set Me Free" (those shimmery acoustics in the intro are something else too), "Ordinary Way" and "She'll Come Around"... Glistening guitar lines caress melodic bass signatures; ...when he sings, you listen and are transported. The ability to come across as approachable, coupled with winning songs and smart, uncluttered arrangements, makes This Time a must-have..."
- Larry O. Dean
Amplifier Magazine
Issue 34 * Jan-Feb 2003

"...teeming with catchy melodies and sweet pop/rock arrangements. From the opening notes of the title track or the shimmering "All Over Town," Mike Shupp resembles a cross between Tom Petty and Michael Stipe as drummer Chris Zogby propels the music forward... Fans of the Replacements All Shook Down album should find comfort in much of the record... the album is extremely well done..."

All Music Guide
March 2003

"...Marshall Crenshaw, The Plimsouls, Firetown/Spooner, The Sighs -- this album holds its own with those top flight acts. ...Shupp really engages his compositions with feeling. His guitar work is subtly terrific -- listen to the lead guitar fills that he tucks into the verses of "Ordinary Way" that add color and texture. Shupp's songs all share a smoldering drive that gives them a resonant appeal. Songs like "She'll Come Around" and the title track push all the right jangly pop buttons, with Shupp folding in little melodic surprises amongst the bouncy guitar riffs... This is an album that demands to be played loudly at home..."

"...Mike Shupp knows what works in guitar power pop. The short but alluring opening title track conjures up songs by BoDeans and Bash & Pop with its tight feeling while still being able to jangle at times... There's a lot of Tom Petty figuratively heard in these ten songs, particularly in the airtight Another Life, a mid-tempo melodic pop number. The quality of each track is what sets him apart from so many others... Set Me Free has to be the best track here... a very solid album..."
