"'No Man’s Land,' which heralds these eleven splendid tracks, begins with a stomping Dave Clark Five beat and the best melody this side of Andy Partridge." -- Dan Pavelich, Popalooza

"'No Man’s Land' is the perfect lead off track. Irresistibly catchy and a little over 3 minutes, this radio friendly slice of pop perfection would fit in nicely with a Badfinger mix tape." -- Richard Rossi, Powerpop News

"An insistent drum foundation is adorned with lovely vocal harmonies, and some twin lead guitar during the instrumental break harks back to the classic rockers who used that approach: Boston, Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash and the like." -- Bill Kopp, Musoscribe, contributing editor at Goldmine: The Collectors Record and CD Marketplace, and Jazz & Prog Editor at BLURT magazine.

"Jangling with juicy hooks and shapely breaks galore, 'No Man’s Land' opens the album with a bang. Steve Stoeckel’s clear and melodic vocals rest firmly in the Paul McCartney/Emitt Rhodes camp, while Pop Co-Op’s punchy harmonies fit perfectly into the proceedings." -- Beverly Paterson, Something Else Reviews

A near perfect pop song -- Dagger Zine

A favorite -- LMNOP aka dONW7, Babysue


Can't stand the pain can't stand the cure
You'd never take it that's for sure
Somebody broke you right in two
Never again you say, but isn't it lonely
There in no man's land
You've got your friends your life’s complete
They give you everything you need
Don't you remember what it's like
Anticipation, ah what you're missing
There in no man's land

Can't stand the pain can't stand the cure
You'd never take it that's for sure
Don't you remember what it's like
Never again, you say, but isn’t it lonely?
There in no man's land
