Here are some reviews: Jeff Liberty interview in Punkglobe http://www.punkglobe.com/edgarbreauinterview0212.php Graham Rocking review Hamilton Spec https://www.thespec.com/whatson-story/2138065-edgar-breau-finds-his-blue-period/ and from The Toronto Star's John Sakamoto: “Patches of Blue”

Edgar Breau is the frontman for legendary psych band Simply Saucer, a career summation that serves no purpose here other than one of contrast. Abandoning the electric (and electrifying) mayhem of his legacy, the solo Breau has created a sublimely atmospheric kind of melancholy that will be familiar to acolytes of everyone from Chet Baker to Robert Wyatt. Rendered elegantly in 3/4 time, it makes a couplet such as “And just like a summer sky/ I have my patches of blue” feel like it's swaying in the breeze. (From Patches of Blue)
