"Albany-based Hard Soul have released their third record, "Heart Of Plaster," and it's quite spectacular." "This is simply one of the best local rock releases in years..."
"...exemplifies the band’s stellar musicianship, versatility, and range of emotion that Hard Soul can evoke."
“At the end of the day though, the general verdict for “Seize the Year” is absolutely still a positive one. These songs have the ability to work together during a complete run through but also make for great, individual playlist additions[.]”
“... the songs get straight to the point, and you’re immediately hooked. Great rhythm chops, tasty guitar solos, and good sound over-all... [a]ll you need is to sing songs with passion and Johnny has that.”
“This is a band and debut worthy of your consideration.”
