"There's nothing better than a songwriter with a sense of melody and the intuition for a killer hook. ...On October Sun, Mike Shupp delivers both of these skills in spades along with some great guitar playing. ...Shupp's sound combines shreds of Marshall Crenshaw and John Hiatt wrapped around a rough-hewn electric core that recalls The Replacements..."

"...classic power pop elements... ...Songs like 'Letter to Annette' are rooted in the pop rock tradition that suggests the Beatles, but actually begins with the early '70's group, Big Star..."

"It works for Del Amitri, The Jayhawks, and Gin Blossoms, now it works for [Mike Shupp]. 'It' is an earthy, guitar based sound, with nice subtle harmonies that would work equally as well in a large concert hall, or on the back porch with a couple of six packs..."

"A good album, full of guitar riffs and catchy hooks, well-written lyrics... Smithereens/Toad the Wet Sprocket sound..."
