"Lyden Moon has earned his place as one of the great guitarists of our time.” “I have been working with Lyden Moon since recording and mixing his first CD. I have also performed numerous shows with him throughout the years. Lyden is an amazing guitarist, songwriter and arranger. When in the studio recording, he was/is always prepared and professional. Lyden has also built up a great following by constantly performing live and promoting. His CDs have sold well all over the world. Lyden Moon has earned his place as one of the great guitarists of our time.”
“Musically and sonically this CD is major label quality; Lyden has pushed his song writing to a new level. The melodies still sound like him, but with a new twist to give the music a new feel. This CD is not a remake of any of his previous musical releases, the songs have a fresh feel to them. There is still plenty of shred going on, but the focus is on the music as a whole and not just the technical guitar playing. If you have any of Lyden's previous CDs, this is a must buy. If this is your first encounter with Lyden Moon, It's What's Inside That Rocks is a great place to start.”
“Lyden Moon has the cred and the chops to lift his axe high with the top guys in guitar " "This dedication to melody is coming from a man who has shred more than Ollie North and Fawn Hall. He’s already released four records, jammed onstage with guitar monsters like Steve Vai, Gary Hoey, and Pat Travers. His albums have been produced by none other than guitar badass, Michael Angelo Batio, a dude that’s best known for playing a guitar with four necks(!) Lyden Moon has the cred and the chops to lift his axe high with the top guys in guitar”
" Hopefully, "It's What's Inside That Rocks" will gain Moon, Jung and Thierfelder the national attention they deserve. Very well done." "As I listened to the tunes, I thought I'd hear more touches of Satriani and Vai. It's very clear however that Moon has his own vision and influences. "Speak The Squeak" launches the album with a Dick Dale-inspired flourish and features a nifty half-time middle section. My favorite track, "A-La Carte," treads vintage Living Color territory, with a nasty groove courtesy of drummer Dan Jung and bassist Joel Thierfelder. Moon's biggest asset as a soloist is his ability to melodically wind up going to places that wouldn't be obvious to most players. There are also tons of mood and tempo changes in these tunes to keep them interesting, which is too often a hurdle that many instrumental guitarists can't seem to get over. Hopefully, "It's What's Inside That Rocks" will gain Moon, Jung and Thierfelder the national attention they deserve. Very well done."
"Lyden has reached a level of maturity in his songwriting that few instrumentalists reach. Well crafted rhythms are accompanied by soaring melodies. The tone is excellent and his band is playing tighter than ever."
“Now I will never listen to music the way I did. "For an instrumental band these guys are great. I didn't know what to expect when I went to see them. I thought listening to just the music with no words was going to be boring but then when they started to play they blew my mind. For people that like rock bands you really need to listen to the video. I am sure you will say the same thing that I did. Now I will never listen to music the way I did."”
