The songs are great, the lyrics are challenging and the playing is confident and well-executed.
Bright humor...Strong songwriting...This album could be an underground favorite this year.
East Coast Rocker
Catchy melodies...Intelligent social satire. A pleasant listening experience.
Precocious, witty, melodic and great fun.
Like outtakes from the Kinks' Village Green Preservation Society
The Driftwood, University of New Orleans
Astute, wry, creative and shows some thought.
Quirkily amusing, relevant, funny and unpretentious. A Confederacy of Dunces has the potential to become a peculiar voice of our times.
NY Review of Records
Feathery mild melodies, acoustic serenity and swingy arrangements...late-coming compatriots of such winning unpretentious midwestern strummers as The Shoes.
Kinks-like social satire. Loose, unpretentious and funny.
The Music Paper
Clever turns of phrase...displays gobs more subtlety than the yahoos in They Might Be Giants, the Dead Milkmen or Too Much Joy.
Absolutely brilliant lyrics...John Dunbar has a wonderful knack for describing the bizarre insides of all those everyday people around us.
