Reviews for the Kitchen Cynics tribute album, ‘Yesterday, Perhaps’:
- “This is an internet-defyingly brilliant album, which I can’t find to buy anywhere, and I can’t find any digital samples of to share with you to convince you just how fucking ace it is. But honestly, it’s incredible. It is in fact one of those albums I first heard, thought what on earth is going on here, and then proceeded to play it again and again for hours … Adam Leonard and Sharron Kraus may be more famous in the folk world than they are in mine, but I’d not heard of them before, and their contributions to this album are absolutely fantastic …” – Matthew Young @ Song By Toad
- “The LP is a hell of a starter to get to know the talent and songs of Kitchen Cynics” – Psychedelic Folk
- “I have loved the songs of Alan Davidson ever since I first heard him on a CD compilation that arrived with an edition of the wonderful Ptolemaic Terrascope magazine, and when you read the list of artists willing to contribute a track to this tribute album it seems that I am not the only one, the list containing some of the best current artists working in the loose genre of folk music … to end side one Adam Leonard treats us to a rendition of “The Place You Hid” a great version and the perfect way to reach half-time … A perfect package” – Terrascope
- “A fantastic celebration of one of the last bastions of home-grown DIY psych in Scotland, highly recommended” – Volcanic Tongue
- “… Pearls Before Swine’s Tom Rapp turns in a memorable version of “Richard in Bedlam” early on, only to be outdone on the very next track by Alasdair Roberts and friends’ sinisterly percussive “The Horseman’s Word”. Impressively, the standard doesn’t drop at any point thereafter with Adam Leonard transforming “The Place You Hid” into an unlikely anthem with (gadzooks!) commercial appeal” – The Active Listener
- “This album makes the case for The Kitchen Cynics’ work as a songbook of folk’s universal themes” – The Wire magazine
