"...the simply amazing ‘Captain Blue’ has arrived to breathe new life into the Cottingham catalogue. Intrigued – you should be!”
Classic Rock Prog Mag
"Accessible, poppy tunes sweetened by Heather Findlay’s honeyed tones: lush reverberating synths & Touchstone guitarist Adam Hodgson on fine lyrical form. Most convincing at mid to lower tempos as on the majestic ‘Still Running’. That and ‘Soaring To The Sun’ (complete with Steve Hackett solo) are the proggiest moments on here, and by far the most engaging.”
