The Georgia Straight - Online Review Quotes
"Although he's not really a hard rocker in the same sense as the other Foxfest participants, Canadian music vet Tom Cochrane certainly knows how to kick out a jam or two. And although it is arguable that - despite recent commercial success - his best work was done in Red Rider, he still knows how to put together a fine band and make the most of the concert experience. And, of course, he's got that excellent rock voice."
"It was sort of surprising that the headlining act at Foxfest turned out to be its weakest link (unless Sven Gali was really bad), but I'm afraid Def Leppard has had its day. I've got to give the band credit for carrying on in the face of death and dismemberment, but that doesn't mean I have to like vapid bubble gum-metal tunes like "Let's Get Rocked" and "Make Love Like a Man". And judging by the hordes of people leaving the site during Leppard's set, I'm not the only one who's lost interest in the band."
