"There's something beautiful going on here. Unless I'm mistaken Jeff Boller (aka The Simple Carnival) is surely the new heir apparent to the Brian-Wilson-king-of-sunshine-pop crown." -Lobster Quadrille

"If Brian Wilson had a nice dad, this is the kind of music he would have made!" -Roctober

"STUNNING... HUGELY Recommended!" -Not Lame

"My favourite band of this last week has got to be The Simple Carnival... They are a melodic pop music studio project created by a guy named Jeff Boller who must be the long lost son of Brian Wilson if the MP3s on the band's web site are anything to go by." -This Almighty Pop!
