Absolute Powerpop

"Immaculately crafted pop tunes.. making this an early contender for the power pop album of the year. Take a listen and I'm pretty sure you'll agree."

Providence Daily Dose

"This one is for the high-fidelity freaks... the extraordinary arrangements and instrumentation — including wurlitzer, mellotron, ukelele, tuba, bicycle wheel — shine through and sweep you away. There are just no boring parts — lovely Beatle-y bits keep weaving in and out"
-Beth, Providence Daily Dose

"Despite rarely having any quick tempos, the songwriting and performances keep things from getting dull. So without any duds amongst the ten tracks, this definitely stands as a contender for my top ten list for 2013."

Motif Magazine

"If public taste ever returns to its collective senses and starts rewarding artists for things like clever songwriting and strong production value, Eric Barao should be a household name before long."
-Don, Motif Magazine

Pop That Goes Crunch

"Barao’s lushly produced debut album recall Elvis Costello’s Imperial Bedroom with its swirling melodies, complex arrangements, occasional instrumental flourishes and tales of broken hearts. The lead track, “On Holiday,” with its tension-release structure and Barao’s strong vocals, is a candidate for song of the year."
- Jeffrey, Pop That Goes Crunch
