“Avec cet album l'Italie est mise à l'honneur. Ce chanteur, guitariste et harmoniciste au percours déjà impressionnant, nous livre un disque de Blues acoustique. Une musique composée du mélange judicieux de Blues, de Funk et de Soul, avec une voix chaude, parfois percutante et tantòt émouvante. Ce CD se laisse écouter avec beaucoup de plaisir. Le jeu de guitare de Francesco est magnifique et celui de Davide Speranza est mélodieux à l'harmonica. Ils arrivent, avec sincérité, à mélanger un Blues que je qualifierai des plus rustiques avec des mélodies plus modernes. Un ensemble parfaitement bien arrangé, ce qui nous donne une galette de trés bonne facture. Un album aux rythmes généreux, une performance qu'il faut noter, car juste Pablo Leoni complète la formation à la batterie et aux percussions. Un disque qui nous prouve que le Blues transalpin est bien présent en Europe.”
Christophe Dameuh Laboeuf – Blues Magazine France -september 2012

"Third album of FrancescoPiu from Sardinia. In the best Italian tradition, Piu is a power-guitarist and fully in that style, he loves to play on every string instrument from acoustic guitar, dobro, banjo to lap steel and don’t forget the harmonica. Also not surprising is that the young guitarist likes to ‘peppered up’ his blues with funk and rock.[...]The cd sounds indeed as it should be, sharp, bright, everything good in front of the spectrum. "
Antoine Légat - Rootstime, august 2012

Philippe Le Guennec - Blues & Co., august 2012


"L'étonnant sarde Francesco Piu, guitariste chanteur au look Zanini, et s'en bien tiré, très beau son, voix accrocheuse."
BLUES MAGAZINE FRANCE, Janvier 2014


"Le dernier CD de FRANCESCO PIU ne m’avait pas laissé indifférent et sa prestation sur scène a totalement confirmé tout le bien que je pensais de l’Italien. Un show très bien mené, qui aconquit le public matinal du Tonic D" [...] Retour pour FRANCESCOPIU sur Expérience Cognac, avec un son correct !!! Il faut dire qu’il n’y a pas de bassiste sur scène et c’est ˆchaque fois le son de la basse qui pourrit l’ensemble. Encore un bon concert de Francesco Piu, un vrai bonheur…"
