“Reiner is a master lyricist, an offbeat marriage of Sondheim and Seinfeld. His rhythmic imagery and narrative drive are hallmarks of each song”
— Backstage West
"Reiner’s sound, like his manner, makes you feel at home, settling in for a pleasant ride. But he’s got a sharp, post-modern wit; so the lyrics can weave a gentle love song, or run you into bumps and sudden turns. His best stuff is part Cole Porter and part Kafka. You go from tapping your toes to dropping your jaw, or laughing out loud, or bursting a sudden sigh at recognizing an unfortunate truth." — www.theatreghost.com
L.A. Weekly: "A strong pop sensibility, with an ear for the soaring melody . . . "
Backstage West: "Reiner is a master lyricist, probably as a result of his work as a poet. His rhythmic imagery and narrative drive are hallmarks of each song."
Los Angeles Times: "Invaluable composer"
