"...the startling new debut album by Dublin sisters duo, Jessie and Layla, sounds as if it brushed against the dilithium crystals in the transporter room of the Starship Enterprise when being beamed to earth."Jukeboxalive.com

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: "Quite simply, Layla and Jessie Collins have recorded one of the greatest pop albums of this or any other year. The trippy backwards guitar that kicks off Kinetic will initially hook you, but it's the breathtakingly buoyant Beatles-meets-Monkees vibe which immediately follows that'll reel you in because this record is one extraordinary achievement." DETROIT METRO TIMES Media Blackout Jeffrey Morga

"...think of Kinetic as Haight-Ashbury, Venice Beach or London's West End circa 1968 (we're talking flower power and long, flowing peasant skirts) by way of Lush and the Cardigans (with a little Bangles-ish appeal as well)." Allmusic.com

"This sort of heavy-handed production usually makes an album sound dreadfully pretentious, but it works here precisely because the songs are relatively simple and the Collins sisters don't oversell them. The tracks tumble out one after another, kinda like the mint juleps at Churchill Downs on Derby day." Aiding and Abetting

"The songs are instantly accessible, clean, and polished. But it is these ladies' genuine sincerity that impresses us the most. You can tell that their music comes straight from their hearts. Lovely, dreamy tracks include "Nearly Over Now," "Rusty Old Camera," "Love Is On Its Way" (our favorite), and "Stellar Sunrise." (Kramer was involved with this one, which is almost always a good thing.) Great stuff" Babysue

"Jessie and Layla are like sixties psychedelic music and today's electronica combined. This album contains both folky roots and pop thrown together and done well. Very nice and creative. RATING: FOUR STARS TASTES LIKE CHICKEN
