    It's gimmicky, sure, but also pretty irresistible.

    Yes, he's a magpie--like, is My Girl really not a Ramones cover?--but Willy Moon is classy, forward-looking and 100 per cent on the money. [May 2013, p.100]

    The gimmickry of Moon’s music does prevent his debut from ever being labeled as great art, but it certainly doesn’t prevent it from being one of 2013’s most ecstatic, all-out fun albums.

    Here's Willy Moon: this is music that is out there, it is not cooked up by consultants and marketers, it's a truly, genuinely strange attempt at something new--it may miss its mark but that's why it's fascinating.

    Here’s Willy Moon is an exciting debut from someone who’s trying to break the pop mould, several genres at a time.
