If one were challenged to come up with a blueprint for a perfect pop album, it would be tough to come up with a more exacting standard than this. Foskett, the orchestrator, lead guitarist and back-up vocalist for the recent critically acclaimed Brian Wilson solo tour, has gathered a dozen distinguished collaborators and created an album so melodic and so memorable that it can only be called a masterpiece for the new mellennium… Each entry bears a ringing refrain, a heartfelt, enticing energy that’s absolutely irresistible. Twelve ans Twelve adds up to one incredible collection. — Lee Zimmerman
For pop music fans, this independent release is a must. Jeffrey Foskett, a longtime member of the Beach Boys touring band and now playing behind Brian Wilson on his comeback tour, is a student of American pop over the past 30-plus years: The joy pours out of the grooves as he teams up with his musical idols for a stunning set of originals.
The Evening Standard (London)
Robin Jones of the Evening Standard (London) adds: “Thru My Window perfectly combines the essence of the California sound as epitomized by The Beach Boys at their 1964 – 1966 zenith with the vibrancy of a full blown 1990’s production. This kind of music is long overdue and hopefully, with the advent of this CD, will be around for a long time to come.”
