★★★ ½ 3 and half stars review of PAUL COLLINS “Out Of My Head” from the WINNIPEG FREE PRESS (CA)

Top to bottom this album is a charmer. The opening four tracks dial perfectly into a Nerves-esque, guitar-fueled, power-pop zone. Out Of My Head is short on running time and at less than 35 minutes it is a testament to this man’s ongoing ability to craft the kind of melodies and music that lift your spirits and even compels you to sing along to the effervescent ear worms. Too few bands are making this kind of unalloyed magic these days and for his part Collins should be congratulated for being so adept. – Jeff Monk / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
