"Nostalgia" full bodied rock sound crusted with pop styled lyrics, Nostalgia holds a very tasty melody and a catchy chorus like a breath of fresh air.

"Open Eyes" punk beats fuse a very rock/pop sound very American teenage band sound, this could be one for the skaters!

The final track on the EP is "Liar" lead singer Martin O'Neill should be very proud of himself on this track his vocals are superb and the dynamics in his voice are crafted to perfection, the song gives off a cool post modern rock anthem feel excellent stuff. This is one act to watch and listen out for.

5 out of 6! - Music Review Unsigned


Nostalgia opens with the title track, a big hook-filled rock tune with a soaring chorus. The vocalist, Martin O'Neill is a pleasure to listen to and I wouldn't be surprised to find that this song had already been licensed for television placement. Open Eyes tries to bring back the big rock anthem. Built around great guitar hooks, Open Eyes harkens back to the days of 1970's heavy rock. Froud finds a killer sound here that's also danceable. Lair is the highlight of the disc, allowing O’Neill to really show off his pipes. Lair is a wonderfully dark, down-tempo song built on major progressions with minor-key accents. While this isn't commercial radio material, it's the sort of song that can help a band build a dedicated core following pretty quickly.

Froud is an old-school rock band for the third millennium. The ability and willingness to step out of ABAB or ABACAB song construction and do it well opens up numerous avenues to creativity for a band. Froud seems to do this as easily as breathing. Be sure to check out Nostalgia. You'll be hooked from the opening notes.

Froud has a classical Alternative Rock Sound that you’re always in the mood to listen to, it’s hard to say who they sound like which i guess can be good because that means they’re different....They have catchy lyrics and a good sound that you can listen to whenever you’re in the mood for some classic alternative rock. - Sweptawaytv.com


Their overall sound has a top-drawer, crunchy, alt-rock feel to it. There’s a real radio-friendly vibe to them without being caught up in the commercial mishmash of cheap indie rock with with a solid edge to their tunes. - kilkennymusic .com
