Reviews for Thought versus Emotion

Near-pop melodies mix with a bit of funk, while fire and especially lyricism both get their due on “Thought Versus Emotion.”

Twelve Frankowski originals prove his pen has plenty of ink and many flourishes .. Plus there are interesting covers ..

-Tom Surowicz, Star Tribune

“there are only two kinds of music: good and bad.” Fortunately, Thought Versus Emotion is easily classified as the former.

Each musician provides his ounce of glow..

-Andrea Canter, Jazz Police

[B]etween their own fiery originals, they work in inventive covers of Joni Mitchell's “All I Want,” Stevie Wonder's “Higher Ground” and Kevin Washington's “Three Days.”

-Ross Raihala, Pioneer Press
