"Rick Galloway’s musical excursions on Head Of The Line are anything but simple and plain. In fact, Rick’s creative lyrics are something to cherish. Moreover, the instrumental arrangements are heady, punchy, and innovative. The music traverses the blues, folk, country, and alternative realms with a little pop thrown in for fun. Thankfully, the music does not incorporate incessant twangs and redundant melodies. Instead, Rick knows how to find success with enthusiastic rhythms, engaging melodies, and diverse instrumental arrangements. The vocals are not overt or unnecessary. There is a nice mix of lead and back-up vocals that are both male and female, respectively. The entire album runs approximately forty-five-minutes long over eleven songs. There is nothing to gripe about here. All of the songs are unique, engaging, and pleasantly-executed. Fans of Western music, folk music, old time country, blues, alternative, and pop music will love Rick Galloway’s music."

"Rick Galloway's latest effort Head of the Line is just a blast to listen to and is a strong musical production from start to finish. The music is highly original, extremely melodic with amazing writing and playing from all involved. As the CD progressed I became more and more impressed with it. Because of the influences I would say the flower children who like Leon Russell and Grateful Dead out there will love this one. The musicianship is first rate, the songs are quite dynamic and in extend play format many will enjoy. Each song possesses a unique personality, flair, and signature groove. Lastly - the writing and singing abilities of Rick Galloway delivers the goods."
