"This is an absolute artistic jewel of an album from start to finish. The quality of the songwriting, both musically and, particularly, lyrically is of the highest calibre and you can tell the whole album has been a labour of love. It is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell’s classic Blue album in the way its lays its heart on its sleeve, and is all the more rewarding for the listener because of it. In an era where the album is quickly becoming a forgotten art form, here is a perfect example of the artistic heights it can achieve."
-- Alex Faulkner, The Faulkner Review
"If I was to even venture to compare Love & Blood to a notable work, I’d say it’s Synodinos’ Blood on the Tracks... It’s a love letter to the times that were and an acknowledgement of what went wrong. It doesn’t point fingers, nor does it feel accusatory... Check out the record; it’s a beautiful one."
-- Brett Stewart, Tilting Windmills
"Jean… seems to quickly be becoming the female-equivalent to a poet like Leonard Cohen... This album is a fantastic effort, with beauty lining its every moment and performances that will make a lasting impact in your memory through songs that deliver heart, authenticity and tremendous talent in the most stunning & beautiful ways possible."
-- Jers, Sleeping Bag Studios Music Blog
"...her mature vision can see the world in a grain of sand."
