"I didnt quite know what to expect, other than hearing about Reading Zero from the internet and some magazines. But on first listen, I was pleasantly surprised! If you like challenging songwriting while keeping the music and melodies catchy yet unfamiliar than this prog rock/metal band is for you. They truely have a sound all their own blending heavy, biting riffs with intricate musicianship, great lyrics. And the production is outstanding. Comparable bands MIGHT be: Metallica, Rush, Queensryche, Fates Warning."
Reading Zero Just Isn't My Style

"I tried but I could not get into this cd. The musicianship is perfect and I like the music and production. But it is the vocal melodies and, in some ways, the vocalist that doesn't do much for me.I remain objective, though. I'm not as adventurous as other progressive metal/rock fans are. I do like the fact that Reading Zero avoids technical over-the-topness and focuses on songwriting. If you are into the more unusual aspects of prog, you will probably like Reading Zero's The Actual. As a previous reviewer stated, comparable bands MIGHT be Rush, Metallica, Fates Warning and Queensryche. I would add Megadeth (the vocals) and Damn the Machine (the music & vocal melodies) to that list."
