"Fueled by Dreams of the Future proves that you can descend from a line of rocking lineage and come entirely into your own, on your own. It’s a compelling effort and remains exciting throughout its entirety.

They still know how to cut loose and make some classic, straight up rock songs. Across several tracks of the LP, the group displays an incredible repertoire and fluency in different Rock N Roll styles.

Just as well as this band does edgy, they do smooth and laid-back.
