"While they have so far mainly explored as breed of progressive rock liberally flavored with indie and alternative rock elements, they take some extensive detours on this latest EP. An EP that merits a check by those with an extensively liberal taste in music, those who have A-ha, Coheed & Cambria and Uriah Heep lined up in their music collections, an attempt at defining a possible key audience.

"A short yet powerful three-song EP. The EP essentially combines math-rock, post-rock and hard rock. You can hear parts that remind you of Godspeed You! Black Emperor while other times I was thinking that they sounded like Yes and even Queens Of The Stone Age. Anyway you slice it the band is a tightly formed unit of musicians who have some talent when it comes to rocking out. On top of that the production and mixes sound top-notch."
--- Ted Rogen,

"Certainly not straight down the line are Chest Rockwell. The are they Rock, are they Metal, are they Prog, are they mad (they're all of them and more) act unleashing '6ix'; a scintillating three track mix. Beats and riffs veer madly but always with a melodic heart and an aggressive outlook, 'Projector 7' proving as much through soaring vocals and thunderour drums that are an amazingly accessible challenge. 'Protozoan' chooses to go down an instrumental path, a resonant guitar line taking on a melodic challenge and winning hands down, before an electro-mix of 'Projector 7' closes things out in suitably impressive, eclectic style.
--- Steven Reid, Fireworks Magazine (UK)

"The 2 original songs on display here showcase some excellent musicianship. (The) vocals do not remind me of anyone in particular, which is a good thing to these jaded ears! “Projector 7” kicks things off in a hard rocking way that makes me think of MASTODON minus a bit of their Ultra-Metallic edge. “Protozoan” is an enjoyable instrumental and I’m sure this one goes over well in the live environment. It is nice to see a band that has been around over over a decade state that they aren’t interested in a record deal - they are quite busy on the live circuit and can keep creating music their way."
--- Joe Paciolla,

"Chest Rockwell is a band that shares their enthusiasm for progressive and alternative rock. The energy injected into (Projector 7) is so powerful as to awaken anyone. Protozoan is a great instrumental theme, intricate and atmospheric as if Pink Floyd evolved currently or even a more rugged Porcupine Tree."
--- Alfredo TAPIA–CARRETO, (Mexico)

"The single opens with “Projector 7”, an epically stylized stoner rock tune teasing at old-school rock with excellent solos abridging the verses, the musicianship being top-notch. It’s a high-energy rocker in its purest form closing out with a drum march of sorts laden by haunting organs and pounding riffs. The b-side of “Protozoan” slowly lulls its way into a slow-tempo rock clinic building the monolith of rock before coming back down and lulling back all over again. It’s a musical journey in one track, culminating in a post-rock formation that shows itself in a frenzied solo and eloquent closing section to an excellent instrumental. Recommended!"
