"Through love for thyself and of life one learns that all emotions are truly a privilege and worthy of acknowledgement. Accepting that there is always a greater message that is much more important then ones singular perception of what love means. This album ventures into all of the stages of becoming the best lover one could ever hope to become through the reflection of a man’s journey."
"The old and the new are perfectly content to mix and mingle in Harris' music. It's that acceptance of both that makes (him) a standout." –All About Jazz
