Jeff Ayres - Different Beat Magazine
"Bob Bullock is a triple threat musician who plays a great guitar, sings like a bird, and writes tons of beautiful, intelligent and sometimes caustic songs."

Waddy Holmes - Nuvo Magazine
"Bullock's arrangements are strongly melodic, in both guitar and vocals. Bullock's song content is fairly obsessive, departing a sort of clear eyed romanticism only for short bursts of social criticism."

Mark D. Allan - Indianapolis Star Staff Writer
"Last Blast" as the event was dubbed, gave 32 bands a chance to play on the Verizon Music Center's Amphitheater in front of 3,500 music fans. In the acoustic/softer rock category Bob Bullock's songs were lyrically intelligent and showed far more musical variety than is usually displayed by solo performers."

Tim Brickley - Nuvo Magazine
"Bob Bullock has often been seen as the hardest working man in Broad Ripple. Due to his many acoustic performances heís developed quite a vocal style with a big, full, ringing acoustic and that clear voice, singing his material out reaching the most jaded bar patron. He's the real deal."

Steve Hayes - Indianapolis Music.Net 8/28/03 - Songwriters for Art/The Vogue
"Though you can't take much away from the evening's lineup, the gem of the night might be Bullock. The former lead singer of the band Bob On This is nothing short of a local legend among those who know his work. I've heard folks in the know call him "Indy's best known songwriter" and Indy's answer to (Guided By Voices) Bob Pollard on separate occasions. This addition to the bill will make it more than worth the $10.00 to check out the festivities."
