"Lost in the Middle — Alt-rock band Lost in the Middle certainly is in the middle, all right, splitting the difference between Tool’s hyperaware hard rock and Staind’s knuckle-dragging alt-rock. But lost? It seems the band’s right where it wants to be. Tonight, the band releases the acoustic disc Hope and Calamity."
- Patrick Wall, Free Times (Oct 24, 2012)
"Lost in the Middle, a D-I-Y rock band from South Carolina, are looking to gain some more exposure and some industry support.
To me, they sound like a mixture of Staind and Tool. Say what you want about Staind, but Staind are a really good band (if you don’t believe me, listen to their self-titled record) and Tool are obviously Tool. But being compared to Tool is high praise, so is it really worth it to say that about this band? A little bit. The vocals are undeniably like Aaron’s of Staind and the music is fairly progressive. There’s heavy bits and slow bits within the songs and there’s definitely a lot going on within a short time frame."-Luke Helker " Hear Me Out" on Wordpress.com
