review extracts:
“Brenton Broadstock is a quiet achiever as this extensive and superbly presented anthology makes clear. His music is at its best when his social conscience reacts to people; his multiply handicapped son, say, or a person living with AIDS. In these cases a tenderness both harmonic and melodic comes to the fore and the listener is left beguiled and touched. A wide variety of local artists give consistently fine performances.” - Tony Way, The Age - Green Guide
“[the CDs] give a good perspective on Broadstock's development, especially the more expressive, lyrical elements of it, and reward careful listening.” - Kim Lockwood, Herald Sun
