"...one of my favorite bands in Philadelphia..opening for Civil Twilight, Overlook was amazing as usual..if you're into bands like Radiohead and Muse, I really think you'll dig them"
Radio 104.5 FM
"...one of the best kept secrets of this years Musikfest lineup...the best band you may have never heard of..their album remains the single greatest Itunes impulse buy I've ever made."
ArtsQuest (promoter of Musikfest)
"...one of the Top 5 must see acts of this year's Steamtown Showcase...Radiohead meets Muse meets Coldplay...great music."
““One of my favorite Philly bands…I’m really digging their new material””
"Planning a trip to outer space? Overlook's new album "Smoke and Mirrors" is a soundscape album that takes the listener to infinity and beyond... a great album"
"..very reminiscent of The Verve....great songs."
Civil Twilight, Wind-Up Records
“.the songs on myspace are great, but did no justice for the band. Their live performance is something you must witness for yourself to fully experience Overlook.
“..they certainly have the full bodied power of the British influences. I’d definitely recommend seeing these guys in the flesh. Billy’s voice reminded me of many Brit rockers – minus their gnarly accents – but able to serenade beautifully nonetheless..”
“..I feel as though it's a soundtrack to some great sci/fi action film...“Smoke and Mirrors” just has that great feel from start to finish and is definitely worth a listen.”
One Fan at a Time
“Few bands in the area can claim to have mastered the "space rock" sound like Overlook... Billy has one of those very distinctive and awesome voices that really takes the songs to another level. As if the music alone was not enough, their live shows often take on an added visual appeal.”

“Overlook’s “The Life You Know”… a cool new song on a great debut album titled ‘Smoke and Mirrors ‘”
““While based locally, Overlook is peering across the big pond for inspiration (think Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Radiohead), judging from the keyboard-centric sounds of their new "Smoke and Mirrors" album. ..really nice variations on the theme… “”
““Smoke And Mirrors is the perfect album for reverb rock fans.. Overlook maintains the sound of space throughout and provides understated, introspective moods with lush sound structures… they crafted appropriately linear tracks that flow wonderfully in conjunction with the band’s style””
