"My new album (by a new artist) of the month award goes out to The Statue In The Stone by the Brit-pop band Bronze. This ain’t your average Brit-pop band, friends! Rickenbacker guitars chime throughout this tuneful disc, and I can make favorable comparisions to Gat, Diesel Park West, Different Faces, Starry Eyed And Laughing, Poverty Stinks, Material Issue, the Byrds and the Walking Wounded...“Presence Of Greatness” could be mistaken for a jangly folk/rock tune that has been hibernating for the past 37 years"
Eric Sorensen fufkin

"It's one of the best guitar pop releases of the decade, is what it exactly is, and sounds more like a missing Revolver-era Beatles-slash-early R.E.M. time-meld track than anything else I've ever heard. Simply wonderful pop." {4 and a half stars}-
Scott Homewood erasing clouds

"In truth, the only proper label for Bronze's music is "great." These are eminently hummable songs with real depth. There's always another layer to uncover, and repeat listens will reward time and time again. Some folks hit the nail on the head; Bronze obliterates the target completely"
