All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Although Gipsy Lady is credited to Schenker Barden Acoustic Project, the album cover sports the interlocking MSG logo of the Michael Schenker Group, which is appropriate. Unlike the Thank You instrumental albums Schenker had done previously, he had original MSG vocalist Gary Barden whom he had previously elevated to co-billing status on 2008's In the Midst of Beauty set lyrics to his latest set of tunes to come up with this result.
