“ This is a beautiful version of "Eleanor Rigby"! It is rocked out in just the right way, enhancing the song rather than changing it. The straight vocals and the vocals with effects were very nicely interspersed and the rocked-out arrangement made everything work well together. The Beatles would be proud. The musicianship is very good across the board, as well as the production. The mix is big and everything is well-balanced and easily distinguishable. This is very well-done! Great work, guys! Feel free to comment on this review using the Community Feedback feature on my profile page. Thanks for letting me listen to this song!”

“RATING SCALE "1" Indicates the Lowest Score "5" Indicates The Highest Score Recording Quality/Production: 4 Lead Vocals: 4 Musicianship: 4.5 Lyric Writing: 4.5 Music Composing: 4.5 Melodies: 5 Song Arrangement: 4 Quality of EPK Content: 4 Overall Delivery: 4 ----------------------------- Dear Andy, Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed the two songs in your EPK very much. The Beatles cover song was very well done. Being a huge fan of The Beatles - I was thrilled to hear such a cool version of Eleanor Rigby. To give you insight to the scoring scale above, the majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories. When an artist sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, it's a validation from a professional, confirming that the songs are of the highest level and show strong potential in the ultra-competitive music industry.”

“Hey Andy, having grown up a "BEATLE"S" nut, a teenager in the 60's, I could'nt resist checking out your version of the Beatle classic. I have to tell you, I love it!! I've played it about five times and the more I hear it, the more I like it. You and your group did an outstanding job making that song your own, yet keeping that original Beatle mystique. I do afternoons at KJOY, 99.3 F.M. in Stockton,Ca. We're a light rock format, Doobie Bros., Michael Jackson , Journey, etc. I wish our program director could play this, it would have to pass the red tape of other market play times, record sales, station surveys, etc. As I'm sure you know, the old days of radio , that I was a part of, would play music the D.J. liked. We would take listener calls rating the new song and base that on playability (I think I made a new word?) I admire your creativity and wish you all the best. Please keep in touch. Sincerely, Dave Bowling KJOY 99.3 Stockton, California”

“Hi Andy, Nice cover and arrangement with a good rock feel too it: makes you sit up and listen. Really good version, well done. I have passed this on to our members All the best Dave Bedford www.britishbeatlesfanclub.co.uk ”

“So back in January, the hard rock trio Andys Doomsday Device released a single as a teaser for their forthcoming album (they had a self-titled release in 2009). Known for playing several cover tunes at live shows, ADD here presents their version of The Beatles classic Eleanor Rigby. And if you were thinking to yourself, "Self, I like this cornerstone of classic rock, but I'd really like it to rock a bit harder," then you're in luck. And the story isn't entirely about the single, but the surprising airplay of the single in radio stations in Spain, Ireland, Scotland, and Canada, as well as Georgia, Ohio, Texas, and (closest to home) on The Current. "I'm awfully excited about this song," they wrote in their e-mail newsletter. "It's our best work yet. And soon after that we'll be releasing our original music and then our CD. So, bear with me, I'm not one to bother you too much, but keep your eyes on us." So listen to the song below:”

“Song played on Waves Radio Breakfast Show across North East Scotland and via Internet this morning and will continue to give air time. Love the music of the Beatles and this cover is excellent. Regards Kenny King WAVEFM Scotland”

“Andys Doomsday Device on itunes! Click here and download ADD's version of , a Beatles Classic; Eleanor Rigby!”

“A little progressive rock with a splash of metal and southern rock: Andy's Doomesday Device rock hard on their self-titled effort.”

“ Their self-titled CD hosts 10 songs of varying rock styles, from the galloping bass and guitar squeals of Shallow be the Waters to the upbeat ballad Never Said Never, not to mention the closing Song of Understanding with four movements across its eight-and-a-half-minute length. ”
