"Resolute" (Self-released; 2013)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
"Resolute" is a strong modern hard rock album that starts off at a breakneck pace with a blistering guitar riff and a fast-paced song that sets the stage for what's to come. It's melodic and hard-edged and delivered by talented musicians with sparkling production throughout.
Vocalist Eleanor Goldfield is an amazing singer who can sound rough and husky when she needs too, but delivers a Stevie Nicks sweetness if required. The music is impressively tight, with hook-laden guitar wizardry and drums and bass that complete the sound. The songwriting is heartfelt and intelligent whether or not you agree with the sometimes politically-charged lyrics. A cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son" is a highlight.
"Resolute" is highly recommended, especially for fans of the bands Rooftop Revolutionaries count as influences, including Shinedown, Chevelle and Alice in Chains.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
