Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys fit in with the ‘alternative country’ scene only to the extent that they’re playing stuff no one looking for country & western airplay is going to bother with these days — this isn’t country-rock, this is old-school honky tonk music served straight up, with no chaser.”
– Mark Deming, AllMusic.com

KC Star: “Mikal Shapiro will celebrate the release of ‘The Musical'”

The Musical, her first album in five years, is impressive. It displays an array of music influences and styles: blues, jazz, folk, rock. But it does so seamlessly, an accomplishment that was years in the making, especially for someone easily distracted or seduced by so many inspirations.”

– Timothy Finn, The Kansas City Star
