"The best rock and roll album I've heard this year. ..I'm so excited about this album" Ken Eavel, 3PBS FM "On
The General Project Michael Halloran offers a glimpse into a world
tainted by emotional drama, self-loathing and frustration."
4/5 stars. Sydney Morning Herald National
ese magnetismo y esa energía, ambos hipnóticos, ambos con la capacidad
de dejarte aplastado entre el sofá a pocos metros de los altavoces, es
el que desprende un disco como The General Project
" Rio Rojo
Soufle is a rich mixture of wry observation and social commentary,
rendered with the unique Antipodean swamp rock wash European audiences
continue to salivate over. In tracks such as I Wanna Be Loved and
Approached By A Blind Man that Halloran is at his poetic best; the
former is laden with pleas for emotional attachment, the latter lays
bare the confronting reality of human indifference." Beat Magazine "MJ Halloran divides his time between Melbourne and New York, with an assisting posse of Sinners in both cities. Mr. Halloran, I salute you! Totally
brilliant (and my favourite) is ‘Attentional Blink’ – a bluesy
swamp-rock hued number about the irony of love, while the seething
‘Approached By A Blind Man’ is as Beasts Of Bourbon as it gets, as Nick
Cave as it gets, and also as poetic as it gets.“I got rhythm going in
me”, declares Halloran on final track ‘I’m The Man’ and these are true
words indeed (4/5)." Music News "To
say this record is good is definately an understatement. From the
classic swamp rock riffs to the chilling lyrics of opener Love At My
Expense, you know you are in for something different with this release." Deadbeat Records
