FOR GODS AND MONSTERS:
"4 STARS...awesome, idiosyncratic chops...this music projects a coherent ensemble style and sensibility...soaring melodic flights and, at times, an unexpected but welcome country-rock flavor."
"BEST SOUNDS OF 1992...Lucas is a fiery original with a witty approach to his instrument."
|THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/92|
"UNLIKE some guitar deities, Gary Lucas is an axman who balances his heroics with solid songwriting...good music is not in short supply here."
"GREAT TUNES...Lucas is totally viable as a high profile artist and it's about time more people recognized this .44 caliber talent in a field populated by water pistols."
"GARY LUCAS is reinventing the electric guitar all over again...the sound of an axe wizard/songsmith at the top of his game."
|MINNEAPOLIS CITY PAGES, 11/92|
"ACCESSIBLE AND MELODIC...it's not the personnel alone that distinguishes 'Gods and Monsters.' It's the tunes."
"AWESOME! If there's gotta be guitar heroes let 'em be like this guy...as much brains and style as chops."
|PHILADELPHIA AFTER DARK, 1/93|
"EXQUISITE FRETWORK AND UPBEAT TUNES sure to entertain everyone from alternative rock fans to baby boomers looking for something fresh. Great stuff!"
"DISC OF THE WEEK...Gary Lucas thrives as a guitar god...'Gods and Monsters' has a mighty impact."
"A TRUE MUSICAL INNOVATOR with a tremendous sense of humor...a wonderful rock and roll record...the kids will wish they could co-opt this one."
|DETROIT METROTIMES, 11/92|
"IMPISH AND ASTONISHING FUN."
