    Joyland has a coherent feel of low slung rock'n'roll and Morricone twang. [Apr 2015, p.96]

    Joyland is smart, entertaining stuff with lots of great guitar work and atmosphere to spare.

    Spedding's ever-luscious quiff a measure of his stylish, if eternally backdated MO. [Mar 2015, p.83]

    The star throughout Joyland is Spedding's guitar, but the record isn't entirely all his own show. [Apr 2015, p.111]

    Best here are the former Free/Sharks bassist Andy Fraser uncurling his immortal taut funk on Shock Treatment and New York’s Robert Gordon crooning I Still Love You with quivering pathos.
