Here are what some critics have to say about Angel’s Once Upon A Time…
“ANGEL ‘Once Upon a Time’ has so much Diversity & Hooks Galore! Old and New School Angel Fans REJOICE! ‘Once Upon A Time’ is a Classic!” – Keith Roth (SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Electric Ballroom Radio, 95.9, The WRAT)
“If you loved Angel in the 70s, you’ll love them even more now. The new record is Amazing and absolute proof that Angel has no need to rely on its back catalog.” – Andrew Daly (Guitar World, Metal Edge, Goldmine, Rock Candy).
“‘Once Upon A Time’ is Loads of fun with really strong material. As good as anything Angel has done since the first two or three albums.” – Pete Pardo (Sea of Tranquility)
“Angel’s ‘Once Upon A Time’ is a finely crafted and entertaining album of AOR and melodic hard rock.” – Craig Hartranft (DangerDog Music)
“Angel’s 21st-century resurgence is as welcome as it is surprising. The new music is worthy of the legendary name.” – Metal Talk
“Their best album since the mighty ‘Helluva Band’” – Kev Rowland (Metal Music Archives)
“Impressive melodic rock with a great deal of spunk bubbling underneath kinky arrangements and ear candy harmonics.” – The Rocktologist
“Angel makes a powerful rock statement once again, and they make it look simple and easy. The songs are melodic, with plenty of catchy hooks. This is an excellent release, and you will be turning this record over and over.” – Mark Kadzielawa (69 Faces Of Rock )
