"Babylon Saints are brilliant--a soulful energy force of irresistible rhythms and enticing stories. At a time when the musical landscape has grown dim, Babylon Saints have turned on the creative lights with a suite of brilliant songs that speak to the mind and heart. They are intelligent; they are funky; they are original; they are simple; they are complex; they are saintly in their expression of joy, hope, and musical inspiration." 
--David Ritz
