"Highly Recommended"

By Kevin Matthews:

Brent Daniel Better Late (Self-released) Very '80s and in a good way! The way Daniel mixes guitars, synths and tunes recalls the likes of Utopia and Klaatu, whilst imbued with the melodic sense of Crowded House and World Party. All told, very impressively constructed and highly recommended art-rock. Never a dull moment. - Fufkin.com


"Expertly Penned Gems!"

On Brent Daniel’s 16 track CD Better Late there is something for practically everyone, especially those who fancy edgy modern pop-rock circa 1989, 1990 and pre-Cobain 1991. What he has done is create a very radio friendly, albeit retro-styled, compilation of some expertly penned pop gems. The opener, “Guardian” and “Dreaming For You” could even be radio hits today. The latter reminds me of INXS’ "Never Tear Us Apart” If I had to describe Brent’s vocal sound as a whole he’d be a cross between Lindsey Buckingham and Jason Mraz, with a definite European flair. However, he is a quite versatile singer, so he can’t be pinned down by those two. I would guess his musical influences run from The Cure to Yazoo to Pink Floyd to OMD and along to a host of others. He, in fact, mixes quite a number of styles from the ‘60’s to the ‘80’s to keep things interesting. Also, the use of world style instruments and/ or programming was very cool. In the last few numbers, he experimented with new age/meditation which was a contrast to the edgy pop heard earlier on the album. If Brent Daniel released Better Late circa 1989, I have no doubt he would be a rich man today. In 2004, with this disk, that still might happen - Southofmainstream.com


"Brent Daniel #8 in Joe Vigliones' Top Ten!"

Reviewer: Joe Viglione
#8 Brent Daniel "Better Late" This generous 16 track CD contains very esoteric borderline "modern psychedelic" tunes which convey a dreamy aura that McGuiness Flint and Sutherland Brothers and Quiver gave us decades ago. There's the introspection of "Baby Step" or Marmalade/Tin Tin influenced "Nothing To Hide". For those of us who adore British-styled pop with heavy orchestration and glittering acoustic guitars, "Better Late" is quite a find. Sixty-Seven minutes and forty-five seconds of an excellent musical journey you should consider taking. See #10. - Music Business Monthly


"Looking forward to the new stuff"

Reviewer: Tony Visconti - Record Producer
I've only heard the clips "Guardian," "Have It Your Way," etc. and I think you are a really cool singer/writer. I'm looking forward to the new stuff. Best, Tony - Tony Visconti/Producer David Bowie


"Ready Set Go voted Top Album at Swissrecords"

By Robert Pally:
Keep moving» (Carrot Igloo Records / www.readysetgo.tv) Bei Ready Set Go ist in Sachen Namen und Albumtitel alles im Fluss. Wenn es zur Musik kommt, geht die Band um Songwriter und Sänger Brent Daniel das Ganze entspannt an. Schliesslich ist dieser Mann nicht erst seit gestern im Musikbusiness. Daniel war schon Gitarrist für Bands wie Choice, Shebang, MessMakers und die Lucky Dogs. Diese Erfahrung merkt man «Keep moving» an. Irgendwo zwischen Crowded House, Badfinger, den Beatles und eher selten Wings und den Byrds, offeriert das Quartett, zu dem auch noch Doug Bristol (Gitarre), Stuart Settles (Keyboards) und Kenny Willour am Schlagzeug gehören, durchdachten und klugen Pop, der eine Spur unspektakulärer als der gewichtige Einfluss Crowded House daher kommt, aber genau so süffig und ansteckend wirkt. Brent ist als Songwriter abgeklärt und sicher und hat definitiv mehr Beachtung verdient hat.

"The Songs Are All Great"

Reviewer: Martin Lindstrom/Missing Piece - SWEDEN (click for website)
READY SET GO Title: Keep Moving CD Great powerpop/rock form USA. Nothing spectacular, just a bunch of great melodic songs performed by 4 guys who know how to play and sing! And what else can you ask for really! Take a mix of Paul McCartney, Cheap Trick and a little Eagles, and you might get a clue. But somehow this has originality, maybe because of the songs, that are all great, and have commercial potention without sounding like everything else. Love it! RECOMMENDED (Martin) Rating: 8 Catalog No: 16286 Martin Lindstrom the missing piece Robertsfors, SWEDEN - Missing Piece - Sweden


"Feel Good Album From Ready Set Go!"

Reviewer: South of Mainstream (click for website)
I love an album that showcases a plethora of influences. With Ready Set Go’s “Keep Moving” you’ll get songs ranging from Beatlesque pop sensibility (Track 1 - Your Own Little Way) to some pretty impressive chickin’ pickin’ flavored grooves (Track 11 – The Mountainares). On a number of their tunes I heard the oft used and abused subject of love, which I’m a proponent of to a point. Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I’m a shrewd, apathetic creature. It’s just there’s a fine line between singing about it and wearing it out. I’m not saying Ready Set Go does this, but I heard it used maybe a little more often than I care for. Nevertheless, Ready Set Go are a talented group of musicians whose song arrangement and knack for hooks and melody are quite impressive. The more I listened to this album the more I liked it, which is good for you listener’s out there. A feel good album, “Keep Moving” will definitely keep you doing just that. Favorite Tracks: #2 | Candlelight Paradise #11 | The Mountainares - Southofmainstream.com
