"We asked Cagney to get into the collection: “It is darker and more edgy than my first record…more true to me. I think fans will relate to each of the 10 songs and see themselves in them, or at least find another way to look at the things they deal with everyday. Who hasn’t had the thought ‘If you leave me I’ll kill you’!” Intense, eh? If you like a dose of reality with your listening, then Jill Cagney and “It’s All in How You See Things” is for you"
"There is nothing that I admire more than a musician who puts herself and her music out there for all to see & hear. My next guest is the epitome of this and I could not be happier for Jill Cagney as she releases her sophomore CD, ‘It’s All In How You see Things’ Saturday night at Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. I have heard the album twice now, and with catchy songs like “Riverbed” and “Change Your Mind” I plan on having this album playing all summer long. Come on out and support a musician who does not need to use shock value & controversy for you to enjoy her tunes, go Jill!" Stoli - Skope Magazine 4/26/2011

"The Jersey girl loves to keep it real. And if it means dissing “The Jersey Shore” to a room of Canadians — so be it. “That ‘Jersey Shore’ show … I swear to you there’s nobody like that (in Jersey),” she’s heard telling a crowd at Toronto’s Vapor Room in a video montage found on her website highlighting her November tour. “I haven’t met anybody like that. Maybe some of the makeup and fake boobs. But after that … no.” While our girl Snookie’s been getting busy in the hot tub, Cagney’s been busy recording records. In fact, her third album, “It’s All in How You See Things,” is set to drop April 30. And what we’ve heard so far, we like. It’s sweet and sensual indie pop complete with flirty harmonies and truthfully smart, no-nonsense lyrics that refuse to cower." David Lowry -The Trentonian 3/10/2011
