"The songwriting ... is strong, so it will be interesting to monitor the artists progress."

"'Unaware’, ‘Now’, ‘Pine Box’, ‘The Pretty Girls Go’, ‘Carmela’ and ‘Hidden Track’ are all delicious ear- candy pop songs."

"(Michael Cummins') carefree, country-era Byrds-influenced style will appeal to many."

"The Pomes effortlessly define themselves and create a sound of twangy guitars, country violins, and electronic rhythms which rebels from any particular label."

"I wouldn't have guessed that as broad of a mix as this would work, but it does. And quite well. Check out the The Pomes."

"There's an almost childish glee in the blips and tone that swirl in "The Pretty Girls Go." The pretty, softly lilting "Carmela" is a mournful ode about Guatemala's civil war, with Cummins' wispy voice uttering, "They tied your uncle with barbed wire." He has a skillful way of squeezing the maximum impact from such contrasts."

"PineBox ... a sweet sapless love song as the whistles take the close."
"The Pretty Girls Go - a beautiful elegy to the passing of summer."

- Noreaster, Issue 5: Spring/Summer 2003 - Noreaster


"For those who enjoy the unusual, definitely."
