Rolling Stone

"Spiritual adventuring by a California band that dances well clear of high seriousness into a unique groove" says
TIME magazine of "Into The Woods", rating Into The Woods as one of the top ten rock albums of 1987.

"The Call opened the evening with an urgent , driving set, highlighted by songs from the band's new album, "Into The Woods", and it's previous one, "Reconciled", and proved why this band deserves more attention than it's been receiving."- David Kronke,
Dallas Times Herald

"The Call consciously avoids trendiness and continues making music from the heart. This is a band to watch."- Dave Golladay,
Pittsburgh Leader

"The Call's music is just good well-crafted rock and roll. By the middle of their set, the sold-out Chrysler Hall was crammed with people dancing in, on and around their seats. The Call were great in concert. The crowd loved them, and so did I."- Lia Braganza,
York Town Crier

"...The Call, unsung or not, may well be the closest thing America has ever had to its own U2. No wonder Bono, Peter Gabriel, and Bruce Cockburn are Call fans." - Lou Carloza,
