“‘Son Of An American Dream’ by Bill Curreri is a rockin’ little record I want my DJ to play&ellipsis; If Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers made this exact album, it would be hailed coast to coast. If The Eagles made this exact album, it would also be hailed&ellipsis; What makes it all cool is that his observations are totally universal, his experiences mirroring his generation. I totally get this guy. He’s me. He’s you&ellipsis; Intelligent personal lyrics sung with creamy-sweet harmony&ellipsis; yet accentuated with a kick-ass band is always going to win me over”

“Mix in a little Steely Dan, some Gerry Rafferty with a touch of Dylan and The Byrds and you come away with an album that pops and rocks in all the right places&ellipsis; There’s so many cool cuts here for pop and rock fans to pick and choose from&ellipsis; State of the art 21st century jangle pop gets a solid transfusion with Bill Curreri’s “Son Of An American Dream.” -MWE3.com

“&ellipsis;despite the musicians’ East Coast roots, “Son of the American Dream” sounds as if it was given birth in Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon music scene found in the early 1970’s&ellipsis;.Curreri cites the influence of the Byrds and Jackson Browne, artists who migrated to Southern California and are credited with helping create the country rock sound made most famous by bands such as the Eagles. And like a good country rock song, “Son of an American Dream” tracks such as “Hold On To Your Heart,” I’m Alright Now” and “Son of an American Dream,” with their bouncy beat and three part harmonies, are the kind of songs you blast when driving full throttle down an open road with the top down&ellipsis;.Not that all of the songs found on “Son of an American Dream” are country rock. “Fade Away” with its screeching guitar beginnings and a bass line reminiscent of REO Speedwagon’s “Back on the Road Again,” is just a flat out rocker. Both the haunting “She Still Got a Hold on Me” and “Pain is Coming,” have a jazzy, Steely Dan like vibe to them. “Last Chance for Changes,” is a funk driven, psychedelic plea that if you’re going to change the world, you better do it while you can.With each listening the ten tracks get better and require you to reassess which song is your favorite.” – EXAMINER.COM
