    Its versatility is quite dazzling, making it one of the best records in the Romweber catalog.

    Is That You in the Blue? is the kind of freewheeling, creative rock record that should make Romweber a key influence on yet another generation.

    Not intended for the faint of heart, Is That You in the Blue? chides, challenges and relentlessly rocks.

    Romweber will expertly rattle your eardrums and then join you for a smoke out back. [Jul 2011, p.92]

    Romweber is still ruler of his own bossa nova rockabilly kingdom, skipping from surf-guitar rave-ups to spacey instrumentals to sepulchral balladry, with the occasional Xavier Cugat cover tossed in.

    Album highlight and instrumental freak-out "Climb Down" even sports frantic rock 'n' roll saxophone that would've fit in nicely on the new Black Lips album. Unfortunately, these lively moments are watered down by a majority of low-key material, verging from enjoyable to listless, which in turn makes Is That You in the Blue? a mixed bag overall.
