"Dan Cavalca can already boast a fully-formed individual approach to an instrumental music that brings together a lot of familiar elements but the alchemy itself is uncommon…and uncommonly good."
"The album has an almost movie soundtrack vibe to it but is listenable from all directions and is a satisfying and exceptional release."
"All taken, Lights of Red Island is a diverse and refreshing slab of instrumental tunes that never overstay their welcome."
"Dan Cavalca has stepped out with his own style in recent years. Ironically, his own growth as an individual artist becomes most apparent by covering an entire album originally led by his old mentor"
