All About Jazz – 4/5 – “If this followup doesn’t throw in the kitchen sink quite as completely, he’s still clearing plates and loading the dishwasher.”

Under the Radar – 7.5/10 – “a continued flow of boundless inspiration that begins and ends in completely unexpected places.”

American Songwriter – 3.5/5 – “Diverse to the extreme, Non-Secure Connection is the sound of Bruce Hornsby’s restless artistry both lyrically and musically.”

All  Music – 3.5/5 – “Capitalizes on Hornsby‘s restlessness, scaling back the lingering echoes of pop and Americana so the pianist can concentrate on jazz and electronica .” – “A demanding, versatile album is ” Non-Secure Connection”, but also one rich in wonderful moments, appealing guest appearances and with an inspired artist at the center.”
