***Andrew Shields is a musician himself. If you have not heard him play, read his poems. The scene in which Thomas Hardy listens to Louis Armstrong could only have been arranged by someone like him. (Durs Grünbein)

***For me, what Shields does best is to construct poems of a dreamlike nature in which we seem to overhear other peoples thoughts or pick up scraps from messages or whispers of conspiracy. (Thomas Ovens, London Grip)

***There's a fine mix of lyric and clever derangement in the poems. (Padraig Rooney)
