Jim Quinn of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote, ' Warren Bloom can do anything with his voice, and apparently isn't afraid to try. It's nice to hear some sing in his own voice.' All of which could make anyone's ego soar into the ozone, but Bloom is also considered to be one of the nicest guys in the Big Apple by his many friends.
