“How It Feels is all about loud, huge riffs and a mean rhythm section. Adding it all up it spells excitement. If How It Feels signifies Cindy Lawson's return to rock and roll, the world can only welcome her warmly.” - WoNoBloG
"Cindy Lawson's “New Tricks”—call it a comeback even if you’re shadowboxing with L. L. Cool J—is being re-released by Rum Bar Records this coming week. You can order one through the Bandcamp site linked here. I'll give you a sec. Cindy’s music, like that of every great rock ’n’ roller, can make you feel powerful and cool, a little cooler than you actually are, and also that you ain't alone if sometimes you’re sad and angry and uncomfortable and unsatisfied. She has larger concerns than guitar tone, but not so large that she won’t, you know, get the guitar tone right. Her band pulverizes when they need to and ferries across the Mersey when that’s the ticket, and Cindy sees and hears for miles, the whole Ronnie Spectrum. Steve Price produces very well, which is kind of unfair ’cause he also plays bass and sings really well. Speaking of: Cindy can sing it snarly and she can sing it sweet. She writes smart words and tunes and includes one song by our mutual friend, the late, great Lori Wray. A moving tribute. What’s more, through her model as a musician and through her words in and out of song, she’s helped challenge and prod this sexist music biz and/or scene to be a little more equitable, a little safer, a little more accountable, a little more representative."
Dylan Hicks, American singer, songwriter, and novelist, aka, "The Governor of Fun"
