Imagine Satriani/Vai and Holdsworth/Torn styled guitar rock combined with cool electronic beats and atmospherics and you get something like the music on Outpost... Oh man, this guitar feels good!....
- Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations
Doug Michael fuses elements of fusion and space rock music on a musical canvas containing large splashes of space that allow his fluid guitar to express haunting emotions with a style that combines melody and texture into a unique whole. The music here is engaging even when it's forbidding you to follow. . . but follow you must.
- Bryan Baker, Gajoob Magazine’s DiY Report
It's almost a genre to itself. Best played late night or early morning.
- Brian Boyer, College Radio Music Review
Doug's lead guitar will make you soar, reaching for the "outerspace" that any true artist aspires to.
