"Futile Serenade is an eclectic and superiorly-crafted compilation, peppered with clever pop euphemisms, tongue-in-cheek commentary and sentimental  sojourns.  Conversational lyrics and theatrical instrumentation hold a hint of Broadway brilliance, but the album's raw emotional vein gives grit and grounding.  Hardly a futile effort from Stack...."  -INsite Magazine
