"His Little Walter-inspired harmonica work can send shivers down your spine, and there is as much distinction in his vocals and songwriting, too. Gartland suffuses his originals with spry curiosity and world weariness…He never rests musically striving for reconciliation of happiness and heartache at his own measured pace”
- Frank-John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine 4 Stars (out of 4)

"Gartland knows how to write a song, how to present it, how to say something the listener will want to hear and maybe identify with. It's as if he's dug down through all blues' roots and rabbit holes and found a way to keep the music's spirit intact and yet to let it breathe afresh, in the manner of one who is at once a committed carrier of the tradition and a subtle, ingenious transformer of it .Satisfied satisfies indeed." (Jerome Clark/Rambles)
