"Cimino is an accomplished player with a fine picking hand. His handling of rapidly picked harmonics  and a section of tremolo  picking in the album’s title track suggests that he might well have had some classical training. Overall, his playing is precise, he has good control of dynamics and a fine range of technique in more than one style."   Nick Dellar  FOLKRADIO.CO.UK
