"I think everyone will enjoy this, because we have a man, and band,
capable of fusing Country and Gothic matters, like a
Post-Punk/Rockabilly fusion, topped by quite superb vocals, of a
calibre most bands within the scene cannot match, and although steeped
in tradition the attitude and style of the music is totally modern."
" 'Realize And It's Gone' is indeed a deeply moving album that will have you dreaming of
ghostly graveyards, rattlesnakes, bison skulls and ethereal love lost
as ladies in black veils stalk the back alleys of Ghost Towns wailing
in mourning for husbands and lovers lost to time. --Fangoria Magazine
"A delightful cemetery-and-western fusion that manages to combine the heaviest, pitch-black Goth tradition with rockabilly Americana."
--Doktor John | The Aquarian
"Ninth House frontman Mark Sinnis has a dark baritone croon,
although his band has a punk/postpunk feel with alternately country and
classical overtones, switching between their self-styled “cemetery and
western” and a more ornate, stately, often majestically powerful vibe."
"With a voice as heartfelt as Michael Stipe's and a soul in the vein of Johnny Cash New York's Ninth House tears away the conventions of what gothic music is expected to be...a blend of gothic rock and undertones of country are what greets listeners on this powerful and delightful record "
--North east In Tune
"They're a dark band and they bring that across in their music with a brilliance that rivals no one."
"It’s a really good album and the majority of songs get better every listen. Impressive."
"While dark a lot of the time, the music glitters and jangles in the right places, and fills up the cracks and crevices left by the vocal performance. And what a vocal performance."
