Here are some kind things people have said about the single:
"...has such a groove and is so melodic that you can’t help moving to it; a really appealing and addictive quality ...you get a seamless experience and the melodies at the core of each track are very different and distinctive ...chunky riffs, lovely vocal harmonies and the kind of guitar sound that makes you rock out trancelike, with your eyes shut. A great single from an obviously talented home grown band" Room Thirteen (Emma Gould).
"...just perfect for the current summer-to-autumn transition we're in the throes of...guitar rock at its finest, grabbing you at the first note" LeftLion issue 31 (Kristi Genovese)
"Awesome riffing gives way to angelic vocals, full of post-hardcore juxtapositions and some inspired melodies - give this Nottingham band your attention and you’ll be bowled over by their invention and potency!" subba-cultcha.com
"TOR have pedigree – and an intriguing approach to alt-rock. Sawhooks And Chains recalls Tool and the Smashing Pumpkins, and it's a thought-provoking melody. Call Me Ishmael is equally fluent, with tinges of indie and metal that demonstrates exceptional flair." Nottingham Evening Post (Matthew Smith)
"This makes such a welcome change from the legion of ‘heavy’ bands who feel the need to growl their vocals out like a laryngitis ridden walrus." Tasty Fanzine (Shane Blanchard)
