"The song is creative at its very core. Mixing the sounds of heavy metal, experimental metal, rock, and a tad bit of southern rock. Sounds like a fun summer song for a good rock n' roll party. Great sing-along, ready for a few air guitar jams!” -Reverbnation

"When I first read that I was going to be reviewing a record called My Money I thought it was going to be gangsta rap about how much money the rapper had. Then when I pressed play my thought couldn’t have been farther from the truth. My Money by JP & THE LIFE was in fact inspired by the economic recession of 2009 and sounds like music that lies between Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More... All of the band members are extremely talented when it comes to technical ability. That double bass comes at you hard while you get bombarded with slick guitar skills. The music feels oddly removed from a good majority of music being made in 2014....My Money is a unique release in the current landscape of music." - The Equal Ground

"The new singer, Jon Williams, comes from an R&B background, which is clearly the groove he sets out with his rich vocals on the opening title track...Williams is a really excellent singer who suits these songs perfectly." - Dutch Progressive Rock Page

“Loud lyrics is attention seeking at its best and the singing overall works with the music that has good melodies. Good pitch and beat, means this song is a good example of music in he 21st century.”

"The intro is dark reminding me of vampires. It is creepy in a good way! Sounds like hard rock or maybe punk. The male vocalist drew me in right away, and made me want to know what he had to say. I don't understand the lyrics, and I don't care because I love his voice! Love this too much! Definitely a head banging sound to this track. His voice is intoxicating. Sexy” - Reverbnation

"The guitar work of JP is much more than just setting the groove. There's a fusion style and aggressive, metallic element to his playing which sets the music apart from the usual funk rock."
-Dutch Progressive Rock Page

“This really rocks on every element played out into this song. Everything was mixed in well. I really enjoyed listening to this music. The artist did some great work. This is great radio material. It seems to be it's own original masterpiece and i also think it can placed on the billboard charts.”
