Sarah Bardeen of listen.com says, “Bold strokes of clever lyricism and earthy, contemplative vocals paint themselves on a rock ‘n’ roll canvas with indelible ink.  At times huge, at times humorous, Anthony’s neo-flower-child sensibility won’t escape comparisons to the Dave Matthews Band.” Dan Kimpel of Music Connection writes, “The raw edges of Christian Anthony’s songs are organic and revealing.  This is the real deal: songs so natural they may have written themselves.”  

Carol White of the Pacifican says, “Fabulous.  Phenomenal.  Spectacular.  Breathtaking.  Unbelievable.  He has the look, the sound and the talent.  Sometime in the near future, Christian Anthony is going to be the beginning of a new craze of solo male performers.”
