“Every second of this remarkable album cries out to be listened to, experienced, and cherished. It’s down to the careful listener to find and explore that everything. For these songs will never let that listener down and never stale. Always they’ll inspire, and always they’ll reward.”–Bucketfull of Brains
“Sprawling and audacious, almost dazzlingly ambitious, Jeffrey Dean Foster’s Million Star Hotel is the kind of record with depth, soul, and a kind of spiritual quality that they just don’t make anymore. Stunningly beautiful…undeniably great.”–Luke Torn, Pop Culture Press
“Foster has done some very interesting, un-unplugged things with the leaves turn upside down. Mostly recorded live, Foster has taken the recording in seemingly contrary directions but has ended up with a disc that is quite unified and more than a bit conceptually daring […] Foster has interposed found sounds that give the disc an Andy-Warhol-goes-techno/acoustic-in-the-predawn-hours feel that is quite ingenious.”–William Smith, Rockzilla
“Above Ground and Vertical is the debut from songwriter Jeffrey Dean Foster and The Pinetops, and is the perfect example of a record made to live for […] All the stars line up: the voice melts into the songs; three chords with loosely phrased, real life words make beautiful tunes; the instruments tinker with just enough country and distorted twang; it makes you wish you were on stage playing music that means something.”–Ninevolt Magazine
