"...on this full-length debut, Skull Daze nails the fiercer side of 80's glam rock by giving it a sure metal edge. Strong musicianship and song composition make this work a creative and urgent offering, and less a derivative homage to the past. Very recommended !"
"...Play it LOUD!!!!!! Make sure your neighbors know SKULL DAZE fucking rock! Johnny Rainbow, you da man!!!! Listen to that chorus yeah there ya go…. These guys are going to light the fire so get ready for SKULL DAZE!!!! Get this fucking CD!"
"... 10 well produced and well played melodic metal songs... The whole thing is quite solid... songs like "Turn It Down" and "Nothin" are actually very good... Melodic metal/heavy rock fans shouldn't be disappointed with this album!"
"...Calling all old school rockers. This ones for you. These guys bring back the sound of Skid Row, Poison, and a taste of Motley Crue... you find yourself wanting to sing along to... Bringing back what rock and roll used to be..."

““…pumping out a fine collection of tunes… the music is honest, loud and rocking…. The sound is a mix of sleaze, hard rock, metal and good old rock 'n' roll… There are plenty of good, catchy and memorable tracks on the album… and it's always tempting to put the album on for one more spin… I can imagine these songs will be a blast on the live stage. They are certainly entertaining on record, and there's plenty to like here for fans of the sleazier end of hard rock.””
““…they have in their line-up a huge guitar-wall of sound, with licks coming straight outta a Heavy Metal/Power Metal book, … fans can sing-a-long all night long, because the choruses of these songs are deadly catchy! … this CD is a must-have for fans of FASTER PUSSYCAT, RATT, MOTLEY CRUE, SKID ROW and POISON… and it is as good as those recent Scandinavian attacks of Glamrock by bands like CRASH DIET, WIG WAM and CRAZY LIXX…””
““…This self-titled debut is freaking awesome… some kick-ass sleazy riffs and some out of this world shred solos… The songwriting is of a high quality… DIRTY GIRL is a song that encapsulates everything that was good about the eighties hard rock scene and condenses it into three minutes of pure awesomeness… I urge anyone into this type of music to order this one immediately and don’t let it go under the radar…””
“”... These Italian rockers are much heavier than your typical glammed-up rockers… these guys have a great grasp of what made the sleazy underground so interesting in the late '80s. . They aren't afraid to incorporate solos whenever they can, scream every chance they get and mix the old with the new… there isn't a single bad track, the entire record delivers with a consistency rarely found these days…””
““…Horns Up Baby It's Time To Punch Air & Wear Spandex… From the school of Skid Row, Motley Crue and other fine Sunset Strip acts comes Skull Daze… Acey Starlight and Danny Slade's dual guitars are very good… lead singer Johnny Rainbow is a dead on vocal clone of Ron Keel… The band take more from the dirtier glam rock bands of the genre and less from the more pretty pop acts… if you like this genre give it a listen…””

““The Italians on their first project offer us an excellent glam album… from the well worked vocals and the well written guitars, I was impressed from the sound that gives a more metallic scent on the whole compositions… the album is judged necessary for the fans of the specific sound””
““…Skull Daze keep a steady middle ground between classic (heavy) metal and sleaze rock. There's a whole lot of technique in their songs that you usually don't hear in the sleazier genres… go for Skull Daze and you'll like what you hear: riff-driven melodies that keep hitting you square in the chest””
““… a band from Italy… who has enough balls, fire and charisma to bring back the good old days of 80’s Rock ‘n’ Roll… The Judas Priest-like guitars, pounding drums and even at times Mike Tramp (White Lion) sounding vocals makes me want to see these guys play in a huge arena…””

“…great harmonies, well written songs, and some killer guitar work… Skull Daze crank out some damn good hard rock on this self titled release… there are a few songs that really stand out for me… so if you like good glam rock, you should get your hands on this CD…””
