"Take Me Home" is a massive and very attractive track. Musically the song is empowering and cool. Lyrically this artist is impressive and very soulful with his words. Overall this is a high quality track and needs radio play ASAP. The rhythm is smooth and refreshing. - ReverbNation


"Only You" is a really solid, nice, hip, rock song. This song is really something I can groove to. I find that the vocals are really warm and varied. The instruments are extremely exciting. I also find that this tune is quite powerful. I really like this type of traditional mixed with modern rock music. I find the melodies very creative.” - ReverbNation


This is the group of music fans and consumers who have listened to the track online and left their track rating and written review. They do not know they are conducting market research when they hear the track, which helps to achieve honest and objective responses.

“Rock song with a pop twist, the artists combines hard spoken vocals with a soft rock instrumental beats. The combination of the two makes this song very catchy”

“Wow, the bass at the beginning is really great, nice treble-y tone to it. This song right away is hitting me with a very 90's vibe. The singer sounds a lot like that standard 90's Pearl Jam or Stone Temple Pilots grunge archetype, very cool. The groove of the song is very driving but remains slow and steady. I like how the guitar riffs build on top of each other during the verses. This is a really classic sounding song, and I'd definitely see this band live.”

“That is what I call a good rhythm. The drums are so beautifully clean and purely shaped. The simple bass line sounds amazing to me as well. The vocal is rich, warm and edgy, he has interesting and attractive vocal tone. He will be loved by many because he is expressive and charming. The lyrics are beautiful, original and meaningful. Overall, this song sounded sweet and emotional to me. It was very pleasant to listen to and tasteful. Delightful music performance that I would definitely love to hear again.”

“I really enjoyed this song right form the start. I liked the metal and rock influences in this song. It reminded me of the 90s and that is always cool. This song will experience commercial success and I look forward to hearing it again.”

“Your lyrics sound thoughtful and heartwarming. You have a unique way of writing you music. Usually, you do not hear men singing these kinds of songs. But do not take that as a bad thing because you have a very unique way of making your music. Your sound is really good. I think that your music will be very popular and you have a very good chance at getting on the top of the music list with your unique but alluring way of music. And your vocals sound awesome.”

“A rough and raw opening is surprisingly stopped by a great singer that brings a fresh sound. I love the way this band plays, their use of instruments is great. This is something I would enjoy listening to again, I really like the real live sound that is made.”

“The lyrics really, really good. The tempo was just right, and the singer was amazing! This is a song I would definitely recommend to my friends. It fits in well with today's alternative rock. If this was able to buy on iTunes, I would definitely buy it.”

“This song is perfect. The singing is very clear, the music is clear and I can even hear this being played in a movie. It is something I would definitely buy from the store. Two thumbs up.”

“Song was really good. Enjoyed the lyrics as they actually made sense. I also enjoyed the instruments. This was very well done. Would listen to this song over and over. This is a very well done song - Reverbnation: SOUND OUT
