Critics point of view
“..a melodic hard rock album that deserves global attention… ”
Chris Lambert, Editor in Chief – RockReport, Belgium
“good music never goes out of style. And that’s exactly what DDrive delivers — good music.”
Derric Miller – Hard Rock Haven
“Phil Naro is, without a doubt, the one true voice of Rock ‘n’ Roll ”
Paul Autry – ballbustermusic.com
A+ for marketing efforts with this one! Packaged with a free pair of 3D glasses, the front and back covers, as well as a double-sided, fold-out poster that literally leaps out at you. 3D
Aaron Small Rating: 8.0 – BraveWords
Verdict: 4 out of 5. Great fun album that doesn’t try to be something it’s not. 3D is a throwback to 80’s rock and roll but yet does not sound dated.
