DoFret Review of “Out of the Shell” 
“His style is somewhat difficult to categorise, as I think he may have achieved one of the Holy Grails of guitar playing – that of having his own voice on the instrument.”
Guitar Player Magazine – February 2008
“Curtis Fornadley punctuated his beautiful melodies by “scratching” the guitar against his chest.”
Guitar Player Magazine – March 2007
“Curtis Fornadley whose debt to Jeff Beck and Eric Johnson is readily apparent offers up a blues-jazz-rock hybrid..”
Guitar Player Magazine – My Space Review
“What a dizzying ride! Fornadley barely lifts his foot off the gas throughout his onslaught of licks, riffs, bends, and Beck-isms—and the hyperkinetic vortex is further intensified by bubbling, gurgling loops pulsing under a relentless groove—but, like any good thrill, the adrenalin spike is well worth subjecting your ears to such a maelstrom.”
