"Kevin Estrella is impressively high-quality. His rhythms are solid and gritty. His constant and non-stop lead work, however, is where he shines. Smooth, melodic, adapt and soaring. Kevin Estrella is in the same ballpark as David Gilmour". -Metallian
"Kevin Estrella, much like Vai, and Satriani, can make his guitar truly communicate and display emotion. That’s NOT a skill that comes along with practice. That comes purely from a connection between a musician and the instrument to what we know as ‘true-love.’ There’s a real passion that Kevin plays with that only comes along every so often…a real magic" - SleepingBagStudios -

To say Edge Of The Black is a sublime piece of work doesn’t even convey what you hear. I guess, magical, mesmerizing and majestic come close.

"You're the best damn guitarist I’ve heard in years. And I consider Vai/Satriani/Petrucci gods. Each new song just blows me away.. more and more like the first time I heard 2112 (Rush) back in ‘76’." - Lee Woolsey
