“...These guys are extremely talented musicians and I have to say that they are talented songwriters with their own effusive style..”
Domenik Joker - Going to Hollywood (West Records)
“Litesound has a strong sex appeal vocal, very good artistic portrayal, but sometimes reminds me of Dima Bilan. The album produced too much in a “Western manner”, but at the highest level. The ballad “Nobody Else” deserves a place in Billboard 200”
Joy Tartaliya - Going to Hollywood (West Records)
“.I am a decrepit old fogy! I will die here falling in love with classic rock’n’roll, although nothing new is alien to me. The band understands and loves that hard rock, blues-hard-rock and it playing it in 21st century. But they play that music like in 21st century – contemporary, stylish, professionally; with love, with an open heart, with mind!”
Oleg Klimov (musical critic) - Going to Hollywood (West Records)
“This band is unique not only for Belarusian show business but for Russian too. There is nothing like this band! I’m sure that these guys will become superstars; they are future of the show business of our country”
