“Among the brightest new rock hopefuls is Chris Mess, who has a put out a self-titled CD that leans toward 70s-era glam with a hint of British glitter…..the production is absolutely sparkling — include 13-part harmonies on “centerpiece”  track “Song For Zed” that recalls the awesome splendor of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” – Gerry Gittleson, METAL SLUDGE, June 2016
