"A big Americana-Rock sound sure to appeal to fans of Jason Isbell as well as the more country leaning work of Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty." - Glide Magazine

"Thomas marries the grit of Americana storytelling with the undeniable, catchy groove of country radio." - The Boot

"Thomas will find his place among Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark & Joe Ely. Nowhere on the CD art does Mike Thomas wear a cowboy hat, sit on a rusty truck, hold a can of beer, or wear any stars & spangles. I guess that means the man is comfortable in his own skin. His music certainly is. This is an excellent album." - Americana Highways

"His influences are as varied as they are well-chosen. His booming voice is sometimes Springsteen, Isbell or McClinton and the arrangements on Diamonds are soaring and urgent... A shining new musical force." - Listening Through the Lens

"A stirring love letter to his family and the family that came before him, Diamonds is a jewel of an Americana album and a poetic reminder for all of us to cling a little tighter to the ones we love." - Turnstyled, Junkpiled Roots Music Magazine

"Mike channels nearly every strain of country, rock, and roots you can think of into an interrogation of transience, belonging, and home. Musically and lyrically, the album brings to mind artists like Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, and country-oriented troubadours like Joe Ely and Jason Isbell." - Alan Cackett Blog

"Thomas reflects on the true meaning of home - and the pain of leaving one you've built - on the reflective "Bricks, Boards & Stone."  - Wide Open Country 

"Thomas knows how to pen a soaring chorus to complement the straightforward rocking sound that has just enough of a country edge to remind you where he’s coming from."   - Glide Magazine

"Mike Thomas hits soul-touching, raw notes on new album, 'Diamonds'... personal, emotional... [an] impactful collection of songs." - Skope Magazine

"There’s a bit of blue-collar Merle Haggard in Thomas’ songs... the most vintage part of the music is its evocation of gritty rock n’ roll, which is why he also draws Tom Petty comparisons. Or perhaps some John Cougar Mellencamp... There’s a lot of power and gravel in Thomas’ voice, and fire in his pen." - Off Center Views

"A gloriously twangy steel guitar, beautiful vocals, and lyrics pulling strongly at a listener’s emotions all combine to make Mike Thomas’  'Diamonds,' sparkle and shine." - Amplify Music Magazine
