 "If I wasn't already impressed by Texas Radio and the Big Beat via their first CD, experiencing their music live sure as hell cemented it. The line up included memorable tracks, 'Satisfaction', 'Wonder Why' and 'Wasteaway'. The switch of vocals between guitarist Phil McIntyre and bassist Joe Williams was intriguing and the instrumentals by McIntrye, mesmerising. New tracks like 'Juicy Flirt' left us believing the new CD, due for release next month, may well surpass the stature of their first. The trio, including drummer Dave Carruthers, have a unique musicianship matching the likes of Midnight Oil. A great cover of The Stones' 'Can't Always Get What You Want' ended the set."

"It was a relief to hear sublime pop instrumentation from solid players. The album opens with Wasteaway, a haunting song that smacks of urban reggae. Hope and Glory oozes with gorgeous keyboards while my favourite, Temptation, was built on moving lyrics and a diverse base of splendid guitar work. An impressive debut album."

"Surprise newcomers Texas Radio And The Big Beat wowed us with their tune Wasteaway."

 "Great new local talent. Coming across relatively unknown gems was the highlight for me. Their pop melodies were refreshing in this age of heavy guitar rock."

 "We've made it 'Album of the Week.'"
Rob Meaton, Breakfast Announcer 2BOB FM

 "Texas Radio bring relatively simple arrangements to life with terrific energy. Highlights are many. It has lots of fun, a lot of feeling and I could only be more impressed if there was actually someone who didn't like something about this record. Seek this album out."
Greg Cormack, CONCRETE PRESS - pdf version

 "I've got it on right now. Bloody Excellent!"
