"Okay first off Simon Says is so completely original with their lyrics and their powerful use of guitar that I wouldn't compare their musical sound to just anybody. I saw them in concert on Nov.14'99, and they had so much energy that it made their songs even better. I was a fan of theirs before I even saw them in concert. I saw thier video to "Slider"on X-in Concert and immediately went out and bought their cd. The cd is a awesome mix of hard kick ass guitar riffs, the rhythm section adds life to the songs and the vocals are so powerful. They are a very talented band, with a good sense of musical style. I recomend this cd highly to everyone who listens to anything from KORN-Sugar Ray. Go buy this cd!"
The perfect mix of hard music with melody

"If you love hard-core music but are sick of all the screaming then Simon Says is for you. This Sacramento Ca. based band really kicks ass. Beautifully produced by Rob Cavallo of Green Day and Goo Goo Dolls fame and mixed expertly by co-producer Mark Needham who also mixed and produced Cake's last album. This album really expands the Genre of emocore. It's a perfect mix between hard driving guitars, beautiful melodies, and studio production. if you like Deftones then this album is for you"

"i must not be listening to the same record as some other reviewers. i see four and five stars but the record i listen to is not that good. it is good heavy rock with good melody but held down by weak production. there are many styles such as emo and metal being the obvious choices but there is a little punk and some other stuff. i like the voice which is beautiful and intense but the music is weak. there are some songs that just rock but for the most part this cd is weak. their second album holds better production and the song writing is more consistant with less weaker material than this album but this band is far from the saviors of rock or the great band that other reviewers see fit to call them but that is just my take."
