"Listening Party: 12 Of The Best Records Put Out By New Jersey Artists In 2013 (So Far)"

2010's Asbury Park Poet Laureate dives head first rather than dipping a furtive toe into his first full length studio album with his spoken word, alt-rap style extrapolated into different and effusive flows set against old school hip hop samples. - Speak Into My Good Eye - Mike Mehalick

"Rockwell, Rock & Poetry"

Chris Rockwell should be applauded for his dogged determination to keep the flame of sincerity alive. All the more so since he is now a poetic wanderer in the appletini-drenched wreckage of what’s left of nightlife with a purpose in Asbury Park - Asbury Pulp

"Jersey Strong Records reviews Chris Rockwell"

“Buildings will collapse is the superbly unique, original, successful, and downright beautiful culmination of decades worth of failed attempts to combine hip hop and rock. It doesn't sound like anything else except for what music should be. Hats off to Chris Rockwell for doing the impossibly and doing it flawlessly.” - Janelle Kastner - President of Jersey Strong Records

"Aaron Hodges Podcast"

“I’ve had the pleasure of watching Chris’ career evolve to where it is now, where he’s putting his best work on an album for his adoring fans to cherish. “Buildings Will Collapse” channels diverse influences and musical genres. It’s tough to define, but so is Chris Rockwell. It’s a quality album that’s worth a listen for any hip hop head with an open mind.” - Sirius XM Radio

"Prof-EYE-ling: Chris Rockwell, Making Music Just For Me…And You"

I’d been racking my brain on how to sum this up. There are so many words I can use to describe how I feel about this new album. Chris Rockwell is an incredible lyricist with a phenomenal delivery. Summed up, black and white, THIS is the album I’ve spent my life looking for. Hands down. - Speak Into My Good Eye - Bil Cresitello
