"Been listening to 'Insights' for the last couple of days and I have to say it is a triumph. And I'm not just talking about the bike on the cover! I've been a fan of the Sprout since I first heard 'Cars and Girls' on the radio in my car many years back. This work of yours goes beyond mere imitation, past homage and onwards. It's a fantastic album in it's own right with great songs that get into your head and rattle around for days." - Mark Blackhurst(U.K.)
"Really enjoying the new songs. This is something special." - Kevin (U.K.)
"The first album is great, but for me the second one is a masterpiece. It
has his own character/identity beyond Prefab Sprout. Well done!" - K. Schiemann (Germany)

"Every song is a gem and respectfully compliments the legacy and creative genius of Paddy McAloon and Prefab Sprout.
Having said that, the songs on Sproutless deserve their own recognition for masterful lyrics, amazing composition and gorgeous vocals.
A standing ovation to the entire creative team behind the Prefab Sprout projects!
Hope to hear much much more in the future.
Jerry Lambert (USA)
"It is an incredible album, and you should be very proud. I'm happy that Poland was able to be a small part of it. This album will be in heavy rotation in our home for many years to come. So many great songs..."
Thank you for everything.
Best wishes, Noah Wilson (USA)

"Just given it a listen and its fantastic, you have done a brilliant job and I salute you for the sheer ambition, dedication, and hard work it must have taken to get it all done. Well done. "

"So many lovely songs! You have done something really special!" - Elisabeth M. (Sweden)
"I’m certainly slow in emailing you regarding both the SPROUTLESS discs.
Normally, I wouldn't bother; but I am simply compelled to compliment
you and yours on what is some of the best music in recent years.
Smart, well-produced, and contagiously melodic." - Alan (USA)
"I've been listening to both Sproutless albums in a loop for the last few days and I can't grow tired of them. They're absolutely fantastic (and also loved by my 10-yr old son who is a big Prefab fan: he couldn't believe it wasn't Paddy singing)." - Sylvain (France)
"I must say with a little shame that your 2 productions are better than the last opus from the official Prefab Sprout. Some titles like " Wanderlust", " Love " and " Coming home " and many others are true masterpieces. Thank's for all and especially for these great moments of happiness." - Bernard (France)
"Insight From Retrospect sounds like a wonderful PS album and I really love it. At first I was astonished and it was hard to accept. After many listens now I'm enjoying it for what it is: a loving tribute to Paddy's music like you said on purepopradio podcast. So good luck for both albums!Now I'm ready to listen to some Tiny Volcano stuff." - Paolo (Italy)
"The performances are amazing!" - Yoshio (Japan)
"Thank you for the CD’s. They are pure genius!
I have been an avid Prefab fan since 1987. When I stumbled across your website, I was cautiously hopeful. After listening to a few of the tracks online, I was giddy.
I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of the songs. They will be fixtures in my playlist rotation.
Thank you for making music that can make a person feel. Please make more"
Brad H. (USA)
"From the opening track on ‘Moveable Feast’, ‘Big Nostalgia’s gentle keyboard, bird-like clicks and chirrups and girl-cooing, and you know you’re back in that dreamy landscape inhabited by the object of this homage, County Durham’s long-lived Prefab Sprout. So close as almost to be the real thing, a loose conglomeration of musicians take us through what can only have been a massive labour of love for them." EyePlug Magazine READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE
