Produced by Stew Kirkwood and starring Cory Papirny and Chris Bzrzicki, "Tape Deck Classics" is roots-rock meets punk-pop. Like if Elvis Costello grew up on the Canadian Prairies listening to Gordon Lightfoot.
"...we put in, say, all of Elvis Costello's work up to Armed Forces. Some Paul Weller. Quite a lot of Nick Lowe. Toss in a couple of the melody-drenched tracks the Zombies and Byrds, made when they weren't all drug-addled and self-indulgent... Bellows' third CD glimmers with jangly guitars, coyly lovelorn lyrics, and more hooks than a pirate ship"
- Christa O'Keefe, See Magazine
"Paul Bellows is a singer- songwriter who... writes near-perfect folk songs... introspective folk songs that both jingle and jangle."
"Paul Bellows is a folk-rocker with a few things on his mind and the ability to get it across with a distinctive style and wit. Bellows breathes new life into age-old themes like hope and dreams, life and love... first song to last he hits the mark every time."
