I enjoy this album as a whole quite a bit. Very good production values showcase these singers' excellent voices and guitar work. If you enjoy interesting songs sung very well and simply accompanied, then you should enjoy this. Think Joni Mitchell or Don McLean or Anna Nalick or Ray LaMontagne, to name a few I own. (However, I don't yet know if most of these tracks were written by the respective singer as that info is missing from the tags.) In my personal library I rated all the tracks at 4 stars, except #5 which got 5 stars, and #6 which got 3. I'm very pleased I downloaded it, and will be looking around for more from some of these artists.

Before downloading this album, I was not familiar with any of the artists on the sampler. I am now, and happy for the find. The tracks by Will Hoge, Sam & Ruby, Jupiter One, and Leslie Mendelson are especially strong. If the purpose of this sampler is to entice us to want more, it's a success.

Noticed I'm the first reviewer to give this album less than five stars. That's not to take anything away from this sampler; as far as I'm concerned five stars is for only the most exceptional works: Tapestry, Rumours, August and Everything After, etc. Here's the bottom line: Flash of Light Sampler is strong and worth a listen.

I really enjoyed listening to this album. The artists voices come across clean and clear, not over come by the instruments. I would recommend this to others and look for the artists new songs which I'm sure there will be more of.

Not bad, but not great. Worth listening to. A little too Grey's Anatomy for me, but if you like that kind of music, then this should be right up your alley.

This isn't typically the type music that I listen to day to day but I really like everything on this album! I was surprised to find it free and will enjoy expanding my music library with this.

I just became a Will Hoge fan tonight after downloading this sampler and listening to his song. I tracked down more of his music and I have to have it all! It's great stuff.

Gee, whatta'ya know, music that features real musicanship, actual singers and genuine craftsmanship in song structure and lyrics. Top it off with strong production values and you've got an impressive offering that's free no less!
Six out of the nine songs found on this Ryko sampler are real winners (you can decide for yourself which six) a pretty strong ratio for any album.
Given the current musical wasteland which is so populated by empty-headed tween performers and strutting rappers, it's refreshing to hear these folks creating music that is marked by unmistakable talent and artistry instead of unbearable hype and auto-tuning. I'll be looking for more music from several of these artists.
