"Featuring incredible musicians from Bloomington, IL, As Tall As The Sky is an incredibly creative and diverse album! A myriad of instruments, including violin, slide and pedal steel guitar, Hammond organ and a horn section accompany traditional instrumentation (guitar/bass/drums) to create one of the coolest sounding records I’ve heard in a long time!"
"Without question, the lyrics and music on As Tall As The Sky are the most creative and interesting I have heard in a good long while! I’ve had a really good stretch of albums to review lately, but for songwriting quality, this one is the tops! Based on semi-autobiographical happenings in Greeneberg’s life, songs like (Mary Faye Tucker) take everyday events/subjects and entertain in a very thoughtful, often humorous way! The melodies are over-the-top interesting, and the songs have awesome hooks with full, rich vocal harmonies and powerful instrumentation! I cannot say enough about the songwriting on this album! A gem originally created to thrill a few friends and neighbors, it has grown into something far more brilliant! I definitely recommend that you inspect and admire the gem for yourself! You will definitely be pleased!"
"After hearing As Tall As The Sky by 100 Year picnic, I can’t do anything but heartily recommend that you buy it, and hear it for yourself! Creativity and talent like this don’t always fall into place, and you owe it to yourself to hear an album that has an almost magical quality!"
