Steve Durr's Pancake Breakfast' a Tasty Thrill "Steve Durr has an instantly classic sound while switching it up and surprising his listeners with something quite new to offer that make your ears perk up, hoping for more." "Fantastic lyrics." Josh Cole, review in The Frontiersman, Palmer Alaska. August, 2008. Praise for Slow Boat From Baghdad "No matter what Steve Durr is singing on Slow Boat From Baghdad his music's essence is his voice. No matter if he's weaving image-filled poetry about lost love or the war or living out of a tent, his voice is what imbues the words with life. It's the voice of an older person, strong and capable, someone who knows things. Someone seasoned. To revel in Durr's voice is not to take away from his works' other elements. His penchant fro expression through songwriting and production is one aspect that deserves positive mention too. He sings and plays with such an appropriate feel you hardly need lyrics to know what the song is about. The title Durr bestowed on his album is a dreary reminder of what Baghdad has become synonymous with for Americans - - especially in context with the seductive jazz number Slow Boat to China that must have inspired it. Two of Durr's tracks are directly anti-war. He deserves applause for that." Lillie Dremeaux, review in Anchorage Daily News, January 2006 "His songs carry a tension reminiscent of Bruce Cockburn with the freewheeling observances of Loudon Wainwright lll. You need not be an old friend with Durr to warm yourself by his fires. If you're hearing his work for the first time, Slow Boat From Baghdad is the kind of disc that will make you say, "Where has this guy's music been all my life?"
