.."There’s an open question as to whether it’s harder or easier for smooth white dudes to make inroads in R&B music. If you ask Robin Thicke, it’s not so easy. If you’re following the career of Nashville’s Space Capone, you might think it’s a breeze. The local press is smitten with Capone’s highly danceable, ’70s-style grooves and thrift store retro style, and the national media is starting to catch the vapors too, as Capone was recently featured on TBS’ entertainment program Sound Check." - Mark Mays (The Tennessean)..
.."Capone sounds like the real deal. His malleable voice can fall into a rumble or rise to a tingly falsetto, though he's best when gettin' his baritone on. He takes his songwriting cues from the '70s, by way of the neo-soul artists who reintroduced audiences to the classics — Giorgio Moroder's disco, Philly soul and Detroit funk." - The Tennessean..
.."Harmonically sophisticated, Transformation is a commercial funk record that effortlessly combines banality and exactitude in its search for a plausible heaven that includes personal appearances by Al Jarreau....The best funk of the early ’80s—Gladys Knight and the Pips’ brilliant “Bourgié Bourgié,” say, or Chic’s “I Got Protection” and “Real People”—itched with unfulfilled desires and misgivings about the value of its own sophistication. Space Capone’s music has integrity, but it might benefit from some alienation—a state of mind that almost always trumps the bourgeois compulsion to tame the past." - Nashville Scene..
