Some words from our fans:
"This CD is incredible. The power-songs like The Cavalcade and Conquerors blew me away. Then there are the love songs like Our Own Versailles and Eight which split me open because they're emotional and sincere. In between, huge dramatic swings are woven together with wildly inventive songs (Citadels being my favorite) so the CD ends up feeling like some kind of epic film. I don't even know what genre to call this band but it doesn't matter. Everyone NEEDS to hear this. In entirety. From start to finish. "
"Galt Aureus fuse the best of many genres -- the clear precision of classicism, the passion of romanticism, and the intransigent heartbeat of the best of rock -- into the foundations for vast pleasure gardens, into telescopic views
of immense vistas, into high-tech towers and rich fortresses of sound that no one could have imagined might exist."
"Thank you -- for being my favorite musical experience. The entirety of your music far surpasses anything I've listened to in my entire life."
" Citadels came today in the mail. I listened straight through and didn't walk away the same person. I wish i could convey my appreciation for your music but you will simply have to take my word for it. Thank You and continue rocking!"
"How does it compare to what I thought it would be? All I can say is wow. I don't remember ever being as excited for any album as I was for this album. Not only did you meet all my hopes and expectations, you far far overshot them. Heralds to the Sun is a great album, Citadels is even better. Your sound has matured beyond belief. I can hear that you put a lot of thought, effort and skill into this album, and knowing that you and Susan did all of it, recording, performing, mastering, etc, is a real testament to human achievement."
"SBGALT at last presents his band, Galt Aureus, with one of the most intriguing concept albums to date. "
"This is the one indie album you cannot miss: Galt Aureus presents a sophisticated amalgam of hard-hitting rock, sweet, soaring melodies and ethereal orchestral elements..."
"Every time I listen to this album, I literally find something new or some new story in the lyrics. Our Own Versailles is currently my all-time favorite, but Citadels, Before The Fall, Spiral Stile, Eight, The Armada, and At Dawn are also my favorites"
"Epic...a thing of beauty, and a pleasant surprise."
