“DEREK MOMENT AND MOMENT7 ... set a new standard for the “Neo-Psychedelic Orchestral Folk Art Rock genre ... totally original yet still incorporating elements of rock’s rich past."
“Haunting, hypnotizing, melodic and ... DEEP! I'm simultaneously moved to tears and enraged by anger ... elated yet oddly sad. Loud yet oddly quiet. Stong yet strangely weak. Polka dotted yet oddly striped. But perhaps it's the Xanex. Not quite sure... "
"... Derek Moment is substantive while not afraid of bland superficiality. My heart was moved; my insides were stirred. Never will I be the same, nor will be my pacemaker or septic tank. Bravo, Hip-Hip Hooray, and....Neato! Five Stars. An Absolute Classic. In summary, really rather....um... Quite Pleasant!”

“DEREK MOMENT AND MOMENT7 are considered by many music critics, most of whom are either band relatives, employees, vendors, or tone deaf... as being one of the most melodic, prolific, and haunting bands to emerge from the post - Beatles / Stones / Moody Blues / CSNY / Backstreet Boys / Jonas Brothers / Justin Bieber musical era.”
