"Ed-E Roland is the raw product of something that is to become the greatest step in the musical industry. The songs on the album do resemble the writing styles of traditional Collective Soul works, but it is most apparent that Ed Roland needs the entire crew to truly produce the sound that thousands have come to know and love as Collective Soul. A band with a voracious appetite for meaning in their songs. Ed-E Roland will be an excellent addition to any Collective Soul Enthusiast; although, I do not believe it would be of any interest to someone not yet touched by the beauty that is Collective Soul."
Interesting Pre-C. Soul

"This is a good album, in fact, the opening track Shame is better than any Collective Soul song out there. On here, Ed Roland songwriting seems to be a little faster, a more rock n roll feel than Collective Soul. Any of these songs would be great to redo and maybe beef them up a little bit."

"It was interesting to listen to Ed Roland's first CD. This was released (I believe) 2 years before the first Collective Soul CD, "Hints, Allegations & Things Left Unsaid". Even with (I assume) a low production budget for this disk, and with some of the background vocals sounding very dated, the amazing songwriting talent of Ed Roland shows through. In fact, one of the songs on this CD appears on a later Collective Soul disk, "Over Tokyo" is the song and it is also on "Blender" which was released in 2000, if I remember correctly.

Basically, if you're a serious Collective Soul fan, or are looking for talented songwriting, this disk is worth purchasing. I'm a huge fan of Roland and Collective Soul, and will proudly display this disk along with the band's CDs."
