    It may have taken Boyer a long time to take flight, but on Clarietta he soars.

    Clarietta is no routine homage, more a gripping twist on a timeless classic. [Jun 2013, p.88]

    It’s a sensory experience throughout.

    The album never lags completely, but its fair to say that the band aquit themselves far more strongly on "You Haven't Got A Chance" and "I Watch You" than on rather less comprehensively developed garage rock like "Go Blow A Gale." [Jun 2013, p.69]

    Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs have crafted a solid debut.

    There are moments when Clarietta breaks from being the wallflower at the indie disco, and lets fly with a few carefree windmills.

    Think the poppier side of The Velvet Underground with Television's Tom Verlaine on Vocals--but not quite as good as that would actually be. [Nov-Dec 2013, p.99]
