Review By Michael5000,The Life and Times of Michael5000,January 2010

Once the CD began playing, however, I was immediately impressed by a more energetic and distinctly more Iberian edge than I expected. And in truth, I know so little about the classical guitar repertoire that I couldn’t tell you whether this is due to the program of compositions, or the talent of Jeffrey McFadden, or even the recording quality. Certainly, the Naxos label always does a good job on these “recital” CDs of kicking off with an especially compelling number—a “rocker,” if you will—and of ending on a high note as well, which is a good strategy when you are selling unfamiliar material. It helps.

I might have to do some comparative relistening, but I think this might become my go-to classical guitar disc…

Review By Classic CD,December 1996

…McFadden plays them all with a wonderfully clean and flexible technique, great sensitivity, and a beautifully limpid tone. This is major artistry—I cannot really imagine this type of issue being done better.
