"Artfully divergent... Healey’s Beautiful Sunshine Band go almost everywhere in Healey’s debut album, from straight bop to abstract jazz to post-rock to shades of metal, and they often mix it all up for a fresh, unpredictable cocktail."
-Something Else! Reviews
"Healey (has a) drive and predilection for creatively slopping up the groove with off-kilter accents and unexpected tom explosions, but it’s his melodic sensibilities that set him apart, whether he’s adapting the bouncy, joyful lyricism of Ornette Coleman on “Ubiquitous Condiments,” tapping into classic bebop on his “Aragon,” or pushing a moody, overdriven noir vibe on “Omens.”"
- Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
