Consumer Guide Reviews:

Known Unknown [Favored Nations, 2004]
On Steve Vai's label, only would you believe funkier? ("Known Unknown," "Brilliant Corners"). **

Mistaken Identity [Favored Nations, 2006]
Hard to sustain an eclectic array of guitar-band instrumentals over a full album unless your listeners' eclecticism contours just the way yours does ("Game Is Rigged," "Flatbush and Church Revisited"). ***
