Lucard's lyrics "inhabit a wild world of moon colonies, smelly toes, two-headed calves, senility, human cockroaches and heart attacks. It's a world of funky rhythms and musical surprises and power chords played by trombones."
The Colorado Springs Gazette.
"One of the best new CDs we've gotten in lately."

"Lucard is climbing the ladder of success and notoriety like a caffeinated red uakari monkey on a warm Peruvian day. Soon his quick, precise way with the strings and honest, original lyrics will propel him out of this burg — catch him before he's famous."

"Most of us get sick of songs that get stuck in our heads. The music of Lucard and [his band Irrational Exuberance] is in my head still, yet amazingly not annoying. In fact, though I only remember a few lyrics, I find that my mind's eagerness to replay ie's music a testament to their quality."
