Laurice Monica was reviewed in Octobers Blues & Soul Magazine (U.K.). Here's a quote:
"Best of the bunch though is 'Watching the City Come Alight'. It's got a decent melody, an infectious chorus and the tempo is just above a ballad, you know the kind of beat beloved of modern soul boys. Through it all Laurice's voice is strong and soulful and again we make the point that real soul is out there it just needs searching out". - Bill Buckley, Blues & Soul Magazine (U.K.)

"Let me express my views on the excellent job you did on this recording project. 'Interior States' was challenging because of the need to edit/master tracks which had been recorded on two different pianos over a period of a few years. This required real attention to tonal balance, overall sound stage, and attention to the intricate dynamics of the musical pieces to assure continuity throughout the 43 tracks which were ultimately chosen for the 3 CDset. Eric's work was consistently on top of each phase, showed real diligence as we critically narrowed our choices and refined the overall "presence' of the music. Great organization of data and communication during this process futher assured the end product which is receiving very positive response from a wide range of listeners". - Nathan Sassover, Composer/Pianist
