‘With a glorious 90’s-style vocal aesthetic and classical piano runs, Ian Guerin’s ‘Cry’ asks the musical question: How much can one man hurt on account of his unrequited love?’ –The Akademia Judging Panel
‘His voice has a lot of emotion. You can tell the lyrics mean something to him. The lyrics sound like he worked hard on putting the words together and making sure that they sounded right together.’ – Fan Review
‘I enjoyed the intro to the song. It had a great jazz feel to it. This song reminds me of classic R&B. The chorus in the background was a great feature to include. It added more volume to the song. The lyrics were simple, but memorable and sweet. I would love to listen to this song on repeat. It is so adorable! The artist hits so many notes and has amazing vocals!’ – Fan Review
