"Great debut album from a major talent in the making" MAVERICK MAGAZINE - **** (4 stars)

“A Fabulous record…This guy’s going to be a star” GERRY ANDERSON (BBC)

"Glover's charisma is palpable from the opening chords of "No Direction Home", and hollers for the benefit of a tour to showcase his songbook in all three dimensions." THE IRISH TIMES - **** (4 stars)

“For anyone wondering who the next big thing to come out of Northern Ireland will be, we at The Late Show would advise you to take a listen to Ben Glover and the Earls." THE LATE SHOW, BBC RADIO ULSTER

“…Don't be surprised if this music accompanies some intense moments in your life, or if this transatlantic enterprise becomes a rogue success." STUART BAILIE (BBC)

"Ben Glover hails from Northern Ireland but sounds like he belongs amongst the best of American singer/ songwriters- and could easily be a rival for the likes of Ryan Adams" GET READY TO ROCK (NIKK GUNNS)

"The quality of the writing is excellent and Ben has an engaging voice. I feel sure we will be watching his career for many years to come." BLUES MATTERS

“There are just not enough good things to say about this album - Buy it." COMPULSIVE.CO.UK

"Glover is our very own Bruce Springsteen with an Irish accent and "The Week The Clocks Changed" shouldn't be missing in any record collection." STATE MAGAZINE

"Ben Glover has been quietly charming the under-crackers off of everyone from Belfast to Nashville and everywhere in between for the past few years and his debut album,The Week The Clocks Change is one of the most accomplished records you'll hear all year." FATE MAGAZINE

“Ben has got some heavyweight names chipping, not least Al Perkins, Vince Gill, Jim Lauderdale and Buddy Miller. You can understand why they’d want to be involved”. NET RHYTHMS

“The likes of "Strong Enough For This" and "Higher Ground" could easily be the work of big-hatted cowboys, but are strangely all the more impressive when sung by a law graduate from Co. Antrim.” Q MAGAZINE

“Whether it be the outlaw music of Willie Nelson or acoustic philosophising of early Dylan – to whom the opening ‘No Direction Home’ presumably makes tribute – Glover bends his influences to his own purposes creating music that is eye-wateringly sharp and fresh.” AU MAGAZINE ALBUM REVIEW

"Some great melodies here and Glover has a good range in his voice, from quiet and husky to power pop. If Radio 2 ran their own daytime chart it would top that." GET READY TO ROCK (JOE GEESON)
