Here are some things other people have said about Robert's music:

* "BOY CAN HE SING!!!!" - Sharon Trimmer, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan
* "His guitar is unpretentious (that's good) and emotive. It isn't saying 'Look what I can do!' Its saying 'Lemme tell you how I feel...' This stuff is very smooth." Simon "Vampsteroonie" Holyoake - a well known speed metal guitarist in Leicester, England
* "This is definitely rock. I must really like rock. He must have been strongly influenced by Jesus Christ Superstar" - Dr. Barbara Scott, Lawton, Oklahoma
* "What a voice!" - Elizabeth Sarver, Operatic Soprano, San Antonio, Texas
* "The keyboards are really good" - Rob Archer, Lawton, Oklahoma
* "That boy can really sing and play the piano" - Dr. Linnea Boynevich, Chicago, Illinois
* "It's unusual to see a guy with fingers that big playing a harp" - Glen Henry, Oklahoma City, OK
* "That voice is a deadly weapon" - David "Jones" Smith, Lawton, Oklahoma
* "A lot of people think I'm into music. I'm not. I'm into sound. That's what I like about Robert's albums. Lots of interesting sounds." - George Geurin, Digital Engineering Services, Dallas, Texas
* "This is almost music theater. It reminds me of Styx." - Lisa Owen-Carlson, Lawton, Oklahoma
* "Unpretentious progressive rock is an oxymoron" - Christopher Young, Tokyo, Japan
* "Man, you're so picky" - Michael Kern, Lawton, Oklahoma

Simon Holyake

Layered, Interesting and Imaginitive
Although I'm known for being something of a metalhead, this album really grabbed me by it's accessibility, and Robert's powerful vocal stylings, along with his well chosen guests. I'm a fan of good guitar playing, and this album has a good level of musicianship without being showy. Well structured songwriting coupled with an ear for a tune and some deep, meaningful lyrics make this an album to keep returning to, time and time again

Standout Tracks - Chain of Evil, Dance all Night, Mediterranean, Getting Over You
