Magnificent . . . a banquet of sensory delights. --Vogue
When I read his lyrics, I see him in a high school chemistry laboratory, making Molotov cocktails - his eyes lucid, blue and very clear. --Ryuichi Sakamoto
More poetic than a Kerouac or a Bukowski, yet just as blunt and edgy as his predecessors, Mosdell is a must read. --Razor Reviews
