    Hot Cakes may tail off a bit, but, ultimately, it proves as capable of suspending your belief and blowing your mind as any blockbuster. [18 Aug 2012, p.52]

    Hot Cakes adds little to their hybrid Queen, AC/DC, Van Halen and Gun N' Roses, but their air-punching thrills of "Forbidden Love" and "Concrete" are undeniable. [Sep 2012, p.74]

    Frenetic take on Radiohead's Street Spirit aside, the tightly arranged songs here are pleasingly Queen, AC/DC, Lizzy and Leppard-aware. [Sep 2012, p.86]
