"Jack O' Rourke's music has a grace and a glory to it that will stop you in your tracks and make you forget where you were going! "Silence" is one of the songs of the year for me.. "I'll Forget You In The Morning" took me away too .... Beautiful honest songwriting delivered with a transporting musicality that will take you there... wherever you are going!' Fiachna O' Braonáin, RTE Radio 1
"Every nook and cranny of The Other Side of Now is filled with harmony, rhythm and melody. The E.P. is crafted, both Shining For You and the title-track move in great dynamic sweeps that showcase ORourke has total control over the sound, knowing when to rein it in or unleash it in equal measure. Whats more, the E.P. sounds exactly like the type of record Jack ORourke wanted to make, and you cant say fairer than that. Rating: 9/10" The Last Mixed Tape
