· “Rhyton is going to take you somewhere you’ve never been... Undulating rhythm throbs and plate shifts; sun spots that flash right between the ears; melodies that come, go, return, vanish, and never really existed – this is all Rhyton at work.” - Jambands
· “...smoke-belching psychedelia, like Eternal Tapestry getting spanked by Blue Oyster Cult, only more throbbing and fried.” - Magnet
