Critical Acclaim for True Believer
1st February 2015
Thanks to those writers, bloggers and music lovers who pounced on the album as soon it was virtually available. We couldn't be more thrilled with the response to True Believer.
Our own Sydney Morning Herald awarded True Believer 4.5 Stars out of 5.
Backseat Mafia hit the nail on the head with this "True Believer is a hedonistic, lush, red velvet-curtained fragile and beautiful album. Imbued with the sexual frustration and louche ambivalence of Robert Forster from The Go-Betweens and underpinned by a Nick Cave-like gothic baritone darkness" we couldn't have written it better than that!
The Black Magazine very kindly said that "despite the song Nothing Special on his new album True Believer, there is distinctly something special in the voice of indie pop star, Michael Cullen." Now you know why we are pleased! You can read many more reviews here
