"If I had to narrow down what Potshot's music is all about in one word, it would simply be...FUN. Sure, it's cheesy, and a little hard to understand (sometimes even their English sounds Japanese), but when taken for what it is, Rock 'N' Roll represents old school skankin fun. It's all about the "who-whoas" and "yeah-yeahs" in each chorus that just make you feel happy inside. All the tracks range from good to at least bareable, and although it is an amazingly short album, it never really gets old. Solid from beginning to end with catchy tunes and melodies keep up the pace from "Freedom", "Feel", and "Believe Ourselves". Unfortunately, the songs sometimes get jumbled into a "sounds-the-same" limbo, but since it all sounds good, repetition isn't always bad. Just keep on listening and don't take them too seriously and they'll start to grow on you. For people who like a little cheez whiz in their ska-punk."
Knocked my socks off!!

"Wow! What the heck is going on here. This whole cd is like a rollercoaster! There are blazing ska beats combined with speed punk and the distinct japenese vocals. It is absolutley tubular. Plenty of oohs and aahs and those horns hit such high notes, boy oh boy!"
Takes some getting used to, but...!

"MAN! At first I really hated Potshot, I thought they were incredibly annoying. After really listening to the CD a few times through, though, I must admit I really love it. The best tracks are Sing Along With Potshot, Freedom, and Those Days. Buy it if you want something fast and insane."
