"Street of Mud, the henceforth 5th studio album of the scottish rockband First n Stripes is a marvelous piece of art. Eric Stripes the ever-present frontman
delivers an outstanding vocal performance paired with strong but likewise delicate guitarplay. He sets the stage and invites us all to a tremendous and entertaining voyage in a
land full of wonders and frivolous things. He is reliably accompanied by the stunning drumman Roger McFirst who plays his drums like he's never done anything besides.
Ennobled with a dreamlike bass and an outstanding mastering this album truly is rendered a magnus opus." - Scottish Music Week 08/18
