“The intro is a good build up. This has "Money for Nothing" kind of intro. The vocal is pretty good. The singer has some serious skill. I like the arrangement and the musicianship. The keyboards and studio touches are a good addition. I find this song very catchy. Very reminiscent of "It's good to be alive". A good song. I like it very much. This is a song I would definitely buy" ~ Surendra Review”
“This song reminded me of the 80's, and while I am a big fan of the sound of this song, I don't think that it would be one to be
played widely on the radio; However, I do believe that this is a song (and sound) that would be able to build up it 's own
underground fan-base without help of the radio. This sound is a sound that is gaining quite a bit of popularity now (with me
especially) and it would not be hard to get a huge fan-base with it. Shows could still be sold out and people could hold the
music close to their hearts regardless of it 's 'hit ' factor. The vocals mesh amazingly with the music in the background and the
lyrics are some that I believe are amazing but would end up underrated because of the music in the background being
somewhat of a distraction due to how upbeat it is. The song is absolutely great, though.~Surendra Review”
““This is a song that with a liquid and fast dance of notes does seem to shine. The quick and forceful blend of harmonic chords and haunting vocals is what ties in this song's sounds to a dramatic format. That is why the music is able to become bright,fun, and barreling with a tenacity that is so rough and far reaching in the chorus sounds. What the song does is seem to hold grace and happiness that is real and expanding in the vocals. That is why I see the music in its energetic and humble form as
the song is showing tons of honesty and thankfulness. The music to me has a peaceful, clear, and joyful round of vocals that lead the song's soft and gentle atmosphere. That is why the music to me is ready to rock and shuffle into the radio with a fresh and fancy dive of notes that are creative and dazzling. The song is like a new age pop tune with tons of energy and currents that move with exceptional rates and dips in volume.” ~"Surendra" Reverb Nation Crowd Review”
"Cari's music expresses her poetic lyrics with the punch of heavy guitar and unexpected changes. In other words, Cari kicks butt, but retains her intrinsic sensitivity."
"Cari's songs are penetrating windows into her life with titles such as World of Trouble. . .Who Do You Want to Be. . .You Won't Let Go"
"The material contains hooky changes and modulations that keep the listener surprised and interested in what Cari has to say. This is after all, her art, splashed on her musical canvas".
"Cari deserves to be heard live for the full impact of her artistry. . . (the) combination of her haunting vocals and heavy progressive rock sound is definitely a marketable entity in today's youth scence".

“One of my favorite artists, Cari Eden. . .this spunky lady rolled into town, formed a hot band and has been winning friends and fans ever since with her straight from the heart original material. Her songs feature hooky changes and edgy progressive rock breaks. Veteran road dog and ax whiz John Metcalf plays guitar with advanced chops and a psychic awareness of just when to accent Cari's material with his hot licks. Clearly, Metcalf's skillful playing is a perfect counterpoint to Cari's stellar songwriting and emotionally charged voice. Cari plays a forceful rhythm guitar and belts out her songs with convincing showmanship.”
