"One For Your Mind"

AUGUSTA, GA. - For those in the market for a throwback sound, The Rockstone Players provide the perfect blend of sublime meets 311 style smash overlaid with a Bob Marley-esque Hammond B-3 backbeat. Infusing reggae and ska with a definite rock n roll quality of lyrical poise and guitar swing, The Rockstone Players arrive on the scene with “One For Your Mind.” Providing a colorful trip down musical memory lane as well as biting melodies these Players shake the scene with a smooth vibe ready for the summer party season.

...The poetic springs hidden between the simpler rhymes shine light on deeper meanings worth consideration. At times hitting on political turmoil, poverty, and lost connections in the contemporary world, The Rockstone Players manage to combine pop culture sayings with introspective questions in an interesting array of vocal announcement.

At its most basic, this is an album of fun for the listeners of the world. Reliving some of the more pronounced sounds of popular nineties bands, The Rockstone Players revel in jaunty explorations into popular thought. Songs like “Tropical Cancer” and “Troubled Times” provide examples of the wonder still to be found in the use of organ drops within a backbeat stammer while “Fisherwoman Dub” shows a sustainable polish in the emerging sound of the band. “New Haven Dub” is sure to insight reactions of pure energetic activity with its swinging beats, and the intriguing staccato of “Just Knock” begs for repeat listening in the car on a sunny day with the wind blowing through the windows. Finally, the standard nod to Sublime’s “Smoke Two Joints” is put together in a marvelous parody of affection in the exquisitely produced “Sweet Mary Jane,” which brings the smell of smoke back to its rightful place as a loving confidant of the mind.

Brimming with swinging beats and freestyle energy, The Rockstone Players arrive just in time to start a party, and provide the accompaniment of a solid melody to sunny day adventures. - Metro Spirit, Augusta, GA

"Light It Up"

"The Rockstone Players offer One For Your Mind (Rockstone), a mix of rock and reggae they call 'American Rockers.' Energetic youthful exuberance joins scattered phrases like 'babylon,' ...songs about marijuana ('Sweet Mary Jane') and guitar parts reminiscent of the Police into a punky reggae mix rooted in the '80s on angst-ridden songs like 'Tropical Cancer,' 'The Ballad of San Mateo,' and 'Lookin Out For Me."
-Chuck Foster (Reggae update section of The Beat Magazine Vol. 27 No. 1, March 2008) - The Beat
