All Music Guide - Stacia Proefrock
The two musicians who make up the duo Young & Rollins met in a music store only a few months before they began performing together in public.

The music is passionate, romantic, refreshing, and soothing all at once, with only occasional forays into cliché, like the rain stick employed in "Midnight Rendezvous" to add an aura of mystery that instead makes it sound like a bad cue in a movie soundtrack. Even though "Midnight Rendezvous" is spoiled by that intro, the song saves itself by ramping up to become one of the most technically interesting on the album, proving that even following its worst moments, this album can manage to entrance listeners and make them forget its occasional sins.

    Real Latin Grooves

    I saw these guys live and they were incredible. Not only are they awesome mucisians, but they have great chemistry with the audience. Their music doesn't need lyrics, it is good enough on its own.. I highly recommend this album.

    Great new Guitar Duo--Young and Rollins

    This new cd is probably the best I have bought all year. The mix of musical styles that this group brings to the listener is incredible. Everything blends so perfectly. I have only great things to say about this cd.
