NPR – “Hornsby is by all accounts a patient artist, one whose earthy, unassuming music perennially finds a new audience. On Rehab Reunion, he’s never sounded more relevant.”
American Songwriter – “It may be just a brief excursion in Bruce Hornsby’s ever growing and eclectic catalog, but the charming, completely unaffected Rehab Reunion feels like a natural, even logical road to take on a lifelong musical journey that has seldom been predictable.”
Relix.com – “Hornsby proves that he’s still got some wonderful tricks up his sleeve.”
