Reviews for 'Let Go Of My Bruised Wing' 'Every once and awhile, an album will come along and just totally blow me away. This CD is so good, it's almost irritating.' -Mish Mash 'There is not a bad song on 'Let Go of My Bruised Wing.'' '...the songs are good, catchy and hooky...' -Barstool 'You could slip most any of these twelve tunes into heavy rotation on national rock radio and no one would bat an eye. In fact, the album would probably go gold or platinum..' 'What can I say, except go buy it!' -Music Monthly 'This is a band to keep an eye on.' 'Miller...sings his words like he means it.' -Orange Street Press Reviews ' 'Let Go of My Bruised Wing' seems to exist independent of trends, making it one of those albums that you won't be ashamed of owning in ten years.' -Exit Ezine 'Runner-up' - Favorite Local CD's of 1998 -the Washington Post '...refreshing songs and honest delivery...' -the Arlington Journal 'Very cool stuff, excellent.' -99.1 WVOD 'We're talking just good, solid workmanship which went into a blissfully unpretentious piece of music.' ''The Past is an Addiction' just sounds good, fresh and completely unpretentious...this is a cool song.' -Music Reviews Quarterly 'There's a persistent trickle of local releases that sound just as polished and radio-friendly as pretty much any offering of the mainstream market today. I can honestly say that the debut release from Nick Dastardly, 'Let Go of My Bruised Wing', is one of them.' -Music Monthly.
