about

"Few of these confessional songs are over two minutes long but Bryk's got a knack for merrie melodies and tragicomic songwriting, and "She Doesn't Mean A Thing To Me Tonight" and "The Trouble With Nice Guys" are wondrous. A tape to warm the cockles of your heart." -Jason Anderson, Eye Weekly

"Mixes all Bryk's traditional self-obsession, psychoanalysis and sexual frustration with infectious melodies, musical experimentation, subtle wit amd just enough awkwardness to make me suspect that his next release may very well bring him to much wider commercial attention." -ID

"Bryk's forte is his Iyrics-as funny and smart as they are clever, and they can be wickedly clever in their wordplay and wry reworkings of romantic platitudes. If his humour and pointed observations and ruminations about romantic misadventures are this biting while he's in his early 20s, it'll be fun to hear how acerbic and crotchety he gets in about 20 years when he's writing about his mid-life crisis." -Exclaim

"Like a mewling, sociopathic Billy Joel and his warped take on Piano Guy sincerity, a blunt hammer in his heart and everything else looking like a nail. Eureka! Fuck niceties! In this world, you are either the hammer or the anvil, and I'm gonna be the meanest motherfucking Black & Decker mallet east of the Pecos! I'm gonna study with the master-craftsman! Dan Bryk." -Chris O' Connor, Eye Weekly

"Glib alt.folkie..." -Toronto Sun
