"stripped-down, confessional songwriting interweaved with mainly acoustic arrangements that are both elegant and essential" - Shindig! Magazine

 

"Beautifully Intense, Eloquent and Just the Right Side of Melancholic Singer-Songwriter.......Who knows if Dylan Rodrigue will go on to win a Grammy or earn a million dollars from his music; but what I do know is that everyone who buys Cat’s Game will cherish it for life" - The Rocking Magpie 

 

"Each and every track on the disc is worth hearing multiple times, with the songs' layers and musical shades coming more clearly into focus over time" - Rock 'n' Roll Truth

 

"Power-pop infectiousness with emotive indie-folk in the vein of Elliott Smith and Conor Oberst" – Obscure Sound 

 

"...brings to mind some of Elliott Smith's darker simplicity whilst courting the outsider fragility of an earlier Ariel Pink" – God Is In The TV Zine 

 

"...someone we should all keep and an ear and an eye out for" - Gary Crowley BBC Radio London 

 

"His work runs the gamut from solemn folk to fuzz rock. Rodrigue has gone from everyone else’s guitar-man to leader of the band, and we like what we hear" - American Standard Time (KEXP) 

 

 "An impressive first album that’s heartfelt and forthright, this is clearly a sign of grand things in the future for this young man" - New Noise

 

"It's the intricate use of melodies that really sets this apart from anyone else. The songs are crafted with precision and there’s nothing there which doesn’t need to be" - Fear And Loathing zine 

 

"Standouts include 'Some Kinda Heaven' which sounds like a long-lost acoustic track by Big Star, and the downbeat indie rock of 'Minimize The Damage'...Fans of Pavement The Rock Band, Elliott Smith and Kurt Cobain will find in Rodrigue a similarly talented and distinctive artist" - Harmonic Distortion 

 

"It’s imperfect in a good way and feels real and alive" - One Chord To Another

 

"Rodrigue brings together a sense of worldweariness and innocent musical simplicity, and does introspective and reflective without slipping into self-indulgence. And for that, I salute him" - Whisperin' & Hollerin' 

 

"...inspired by the experimental rock of Neil Young, the edginess of Iggy And The Stooges, along with a dash of Elliott Smith" - JPs Music Blog 

 

"Dylan Rodrigue’s ‘Cat’s Game’ is a complete introspective record with no filler. From top to bottom, this is an album, albeit a dark one, you will want to come back to again and again" - Innocent Words
