There’s no reason why [the song] “Total Request” -- a tongue in cheek mash note to pop Uber-Star, Britney Spears -- couldn’t be a huge novelty hit... Musically, it’s got the Emo Pop-Punk appeal of Jimmy Eat World, the high energy level of Green Day, and a dose of Fishbone/Chili Peppers funk from the rhythm section, so it had my attention from start to finish.” –Gail Worley, professional reviewer, StarPolish.com


“Pop-rock with good guitar, from Edison, New Jersey. "Sugarcoat It" has a good hook and infectious enthusiasm, while "Comfortably" is more somber, but with harder riffing in the breaks. "Titanic" is quite different, beginning with bass-thrumming, hand-clapping staccato recitals and bursting into guitar chords... GET ROY is a hard act to follow... I can recommend GET ROY to pop-rock fans.”-DemoRama.com
