“Sometimes you can tell a band's intentions after 2 or 3 songs into an album. Other times, it can take a bit longer. Sonic Rebellion don't have that long, as within 2-3 lines at most, you get the message that this band mean business, no messing! Hailing from New York City, they are already making people sit up and take notice, and its no wonder with such a powerful debut album as this.”

“Sonic Rebellion – Heads We Win…Tails You Lose: One hell of a great 4-piece hard rock band from New York City that incorporate varied styles of bands throughout the album – some of them being their influences as well. Highlights include the Kiss-like opener ‘Awake Now’; ‘I Got Mine’ that’s very Buckcherry; the acoustic southernish brilliance of ‘Find My Way’ and the bluesy and funky ‘Bad Trip’. One band I urge you to go and check out one way or another. 10/10.
“Rock music isn't dead...it just usually gets drowned out by all the technology-driven wannabe artists who've forgotten what real rock music is supposed to sound like. The guys in New York's Sonic Rebellion are a rock solid slap in the face...with hard hitting songs that feature cool driving rhythms, tasty-as-hell loud guitars, and a raspy vocalist who can really belt 'em out. Heads We Win...Tails You Lose features the kind of loud ballsy rebellious rock music that has always driven parents up the wall (and probably always will). Kicka$$ hard rockers include "Awake Now," "Song About Revenge," "Find My Way," and "Stripped Down."”
"Regardless, part of "Heads We Win" allure has to be the spontaneity of Sonic Rebellion. While each track is able to work in a simple rock vein, Sonic Rebellion continually shifts influences and experiments with different sounds and styles. The result is that no two tracks on this album sound the same, and that listeners are constantly on the edge of their seat, never knowing where the band may take them. It is hard to make a genre like rock exciting after so many bands have sullied it's good name, but Sonic Rebellion cuts an album that may just be sick enough to get people excited in the genre again."
"Sonic Rebellion and their new record, Heads We Win…Tails You Lose. This NYC-based band brings to you a sound that is revved up, amped up and I would even say electrifying. Sonic Rebellion will, without a doubt, get your adrenaline pumping as you experience a full set of rock-nasty jams."
"Crashing through twelve tracks carried on Andy Smith's gristled voice and a soundscape of six-string power and delicious bass hooks (ye gods!) you simply wonder how you ever lived in the absence of good old-school rock n' roll swagger. "Mad As Hell" and "Think It Through" are great examples - it's pure arrogance music, and just makes you feel awesome."
"Fueled by gritty guitars, animalistic drum work, freakish bass work and a gristly voice (think Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead meets Paul Stanley of KISS), Sonic Rebellion piledrives current rock scene torch bearers Kings of Leon back into Music Row. No contest. Who are these guys and where have they been?"
“New York based four piece Sonic Rebellion have released an immensely powerful album, which although it as tough as nails, still manages to come across very melodic and groove driven. Influentially, the band no doubt have a vast and varied record collection to call upon, as an endless list of influences to call upon, as an endless list of influences are all sampled throughout the twelve track on offer......although this music isn't for the faint-hearted, there is definitely something here for most hard rock fans to enjoy.”

“Heads We Win . . . Tails You Lose, but friends, we’re all winners with this beasty beast spinning on the player. If you like good ole blues-based rock n’ roll with a truckload of attitude, Sonic Rebellion is the band that you’ll want to discover. I can’t say that there’s a band song on this album and it will unleash that bad boy inside. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself staying out later than normal, washing a little less, drinking, cussing, fighting more. The music has balls. Hell, it is balls! This is the kind of 70’s rock that should have been released back in the day, and would have sat comfortably next to the era’s greats . . . on pure attitude alone. Outstanding musicianship makes this album interesting in that it doesn’t sound like your standard retro blues rock, it doesn’t sound dated. It’s an immediate recording with just enough of a modern sound to make it relevant for today. I’m gonna’ stop blathering now . . . but only if you all rush out and”
