    Great album from start to finish. Every once in a while a great rock band comes around and just has it all. The energy, the music, the presence and purpose. These guys rock.

    As a lifelong Rocket fan, I've always been left dissatisfied with Reis' other bands. It wasn't that they weren't any good, they just weren't anywhere near as good as RFTC. This record has changed all that. With the exception of Rocket's '95 releases (Scream, Dracula, Scream - Hot Charity - The State of Art is on Fire) this is the best album that bears As a lifelong Rocket fan, I've always been left dissatisfied with Reis' other bands. It wasn't that they weren't any good, they just weren't anywhere near as good as RFTC. This record has changed all that. With the exception of Rocket's '95 releases (Scream, Dracula, Scream - Hot Charity - The State of Art is on Fire) this is the best album that bears Reis' name and easily the best album I've bought in many years. I pray that Speedo will keep this particular project going long enough to produce much, much more of this. Expand

    Amazing CD from start to finish! For all intents and purposes, this is just Hot Snakes without as much vocal vitriol (but no less menace). Catchy, Catchy, Catchy. Speedo always brings it hard, Dawg!

  1. Add the Night Marchers to Speedo's roll of triumphs and feel free to rank See You in Magic as one of his finest moments. It's really that good.

    Performing some of thre best party music for smart people this side of Black Lips, the rest of the band match Reis' powerhouse vocal eccentricities with a perfectly calculated degree of rock 'n' roll swagger, blasting ahead like the Wipers one minute and settling into a slow-burning Bo Diddley groove the next. [May 2008, p.128]
  3. Even if it's easy to miss the full-tilt pyrotechnics of yore, Reis' new approach allows you to appreciate his wound-tight tunecraft like never before.
