Reviews are coming in for the new self-titled Peter Block album, and they have been overwhelmingly positive. Here are some great quotes from a few of the recent reviews:

“Block manages to pull everything together on this delightful 10-track collection.  Opener “Die a Little Everyday” is a keeper, as are the Wilco-esque “In a State,”…Power pop doesn’t get much better than this, folks.” – 3 1/2 stars, Pittsburgh Daily News

“Want something that will have you bobbing your head instantly? Peter Block’s self titled fifth album will do it for you.  While recording the album, Block encountered a series of personal tragedies. However, he takes dark issues that might not be otherwise poppy, and puts a peppy tune behind the sometimes-downbeat lyrics. Viola! Both opener “Die A Little EveryDay” and followup track “Icicle Days” manage to take these tasks and pull off the difficult feat with flying colors.” – EDGE

“Peter Block has done what many others have done before him – assembled a solid batch of songs following the pain of a divorce.  The songs on here are bright and breezy, yet intellectual pop. But one of the reasons Block is so compelling is that no one song sounds the same.” – ESD Music
