There’s a plaintive wail in bluesman Andy O’Brien’s voice when he sings, a spark of melancholy that cracks in between verses. It’s the sort of deep emotional content one turns to the blues for, and on songs such as “Life is Like That” and “Midnight Special,” O’Brien conjures emotion like a musical sorcerer. And then there’s his harmonica, which has a way of skipping cold across your chest. The effect is absolutely devastating. - – Victor D. Infante, Worcester Telegram & Gazette (May 26, 2011)
