Snippets from newpaper reviews:
Weinberg's music is catchy and expressive. He is a lyricist of extraordinary talent.
- Douglas Keating, Philadelphia Inquirer
The romantic songs are every bit as uplifting as the satirical songs are bitingly funny.
- Gary L. Day, Philadelphia Gay News
Refreshingly clear-headed and wide ranging, Weinberg knows how to laugh at human follies, how to think and how to reach the heart.
- Arthur Friedman, Boston Herald
A highly talented songwriter, hashing out issues via wonderful lyrics and melodies.
- Tommi Avicolli Mecca, First Hand
A spirit of cheerfully assertive militancy tempered with humor and musical savvy.
- Stephen Holden, New York Times
The warm heart of an old-time hoofer and the big city brains of a Talking Head, anyone, gay or straight, will feel terrific all the way home.
- Dan Geringer, Philadelphia Daily News
