"Five stars!!! This CD is just what the Doctor ordered for Baby Boomer pop music fans and Jangleholics! The ever-prolific Jeremy Morris has collaborated with Stefan Johansson and Todd Borsch on a disc that easily makes my Top Ten list for 2015. The disc is chock full of Nuggets-era psych/pop and pop/rock tunes with plenty of jangly guitars. I can cite numerous 60s references (and other decades) in the fifteen tracks – starting with a “So You Want To Be a Rock’n’Roll Star” vibe on the very first song, “The Beginning Of The End.” The Byrds vibe reappears on “Time” – which features a riff that is quite similar to “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better.” “Walk Upon The Water” could be a Herb Eimerman tune; “And I Follow” could be mistaken for a Michael Mazzarella/Grip Weeds song; “Finally Found Our Home” has a Who/”Can’t Explain” vibe; “Groovy Movie” reminds me of a blending of the Seeds and the Cheepskates. The final track, the 15:07 opus “The End Of The Beginning,” showcases a strong keyboard sound and harkens back to the Beatlesque psych/pop of the late 60s. This listener also hears some Blues Magoos, Standells, Electric Prunes, Cryan’ Shames and Robbs in the tracks. The Lemon Clocks deserve tremendous credit for building on a legacy of power pop music with strong, vibrant and fresh material. Time To Fly warrants a listener audience that crosses generational boundaries. Long may you run, Sir Jeremy, Sir Stefan and Sir Todd!" - Pop Geek Heaven

"If psychedelic rock served with a heaping side dish of power pop makes your heart flutter, then the Lemon Clocks are a band you’re bound to adore.Comprised of Jeremy Morris, Steffan Johansson and Todd Borsch — all of whom sing, play a variety of instruments and write the songs — the Lemon Clocks juggle these genres with so much instinct and efficiency that their latest album that Time to Fly could seriously masquerade as a long forgotten relic from the days when gas was affordable, the Beatles were still together, bell-bottoms were in vogue, and cars were as big as boats." - Something Else Reviews
