"I love the sound of what you guys are doing ... I think the band sounds great."
-Gary Dell'Abate (Baba Booey)
from The Howard Stern Show
"I love what you're doing. Musically, it's right in the pocket, and it's very exciting and it's well done."
Head of Promotions at EPIC Records for over 35 years, well-respected music industry veteran.
"It’s rare to hear such a strong sound and see so much commitment from such a young band... It’s incredible how far this band has come in just a year and this release is the highlight of their accomplishments."
-Band Aid Records
"Musically, the album is absolutely solid. It reminds me of a mix between Owl City and Matt & Kim, but on a grander scale that reminds you that the band still has something to prove; if not to themselves, then to the industry around them. The acoustic guitars blend beautifully with the use of a piano, giving you almost an older school type feel as you begin to listen to the album in its entirety. The lyrics sung are full of heart and meaning, giving the album a more personal and honest feel that so many bands have problems expressing."
"Guitars blaze with intricate glory while layering with the piano-driven melodies that cascade throughout this prelude to greatness. Lead man Brett Steinberg’s vocals soar with power reminiscent of Go Radio’s Jason Lancaster. This is a band with incredible aspirations that go beyond the simple desires of fame and fortune, ROTS wants to change this world with their music... "
- The Midnight Bandwidth
"Self categorized as “piano pop rock” this foursome is an unexpected mix of melodies reminiscent of acts like Jack’s Mannequin, Owl City and as strange as it may sound, I even detect a hint of Hinder in the opening track “New Empire”. However, the rest of the EP seems to follow a much mellower vibe, with calming acoustics, smooth vocals, and that which I’m most excited about-some beautiful, beautiful piano appearances. It’s true, I’m a sucker for any kind of keys, but the way ROTS blends these three main elements together would make any listener swoon."
"I must say my favorite track would have to be "Moonlight." Less is best, they say, and the toned-down feel of just a guitar strumming against the sweet, calming lyrics in this ballad is enough to make you really feel the meaning of the song. The lyrics, Forget diamond rings, we'll fly paper planes gets me every time. The creativity and just plain cute but clever lyrics in this song leave you with (sic) both inspired and love-struck."
