Guitar Player Magazine- Heaven is Creepy
“…stunning guitar workouts that are veritable treasure troves of Tele trickery, Campilongo burns slow, but HOT on this…”

Dirty Linen - Heaven is Creepy
“…a showcase for Campilongo's versatile forays into country picking("The Prettiest Girl In New York"), rock ("Monkey In a Movie"), and jazz (the film noir title tune) and highlights his facility at backing up vocalists Jones ("Cry Me a River") and Martha Wainwright (Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer”)…”

Downbeat Magazine - Heaven is Creepy 4 Stars!
“…Campilongo has a free-wheeling musical personality that his new trio album with bassist Tim Luntzel and drummer Dan Rieser captures in all it's breadth. He plays with dash and color, the sound of surprise informing his tone and lines, at complete ease in a country jazz-and-extras style forged out of influences like Jimmy Bryant, Charlie Christian, Roy Buchanan and Jimmie Rivers. As if 10 riveting instrumentals weren't enough, "Cry Me A River" has honest singing by one of his bandmates in the Little Willies, Norah Jones…”

"Through the lean ropy sound of his Fender Telecaster, Mr. Campilongo connects American styles (Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz, R&B) in a sly knowing way."

"Jim Campilongo holds court. American music is a melting pot of influences, but few guitarists capture the nuances as well as Campilongo does."
