Welcome to the dramatic and slightly tainted world of Wilton Said... A world filled with eclectic textures, off kilter melodies, and brooding introspective lyrics. Permeated throughout are the retro sonic influences of Queen, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, The Cure, Marillion, A Perfect Circle, and David Bowie. A dramatic existence indeed.

"It's by far one of the better, dare I say slightly more original progressive pop-rock band to come cross my hands in a long while.
“All songs are sung with a flare that still reminds me of a blend of Geoff Mann and Freddie Mercury.”
Ron Fuchs - Prognaut.com

"The music of Wilton Said is quite unique, both in terms of composition as well as performance. As I say it never goes where you expect it to and that’s really what we like about the prog genre, isn’t it?"

Queensryche "The Verdict" Review 

I've had the latest Queensryche release "The Verdict" on heavy rotation on my headphones and speakers at home. It is fantastic. Probably one of the greatest Metal Albums that I've ever heard, and that's going up against Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, and Metallica. It's very much a Queensryche album which is reminiscent of their earlier material with a great blend of Prog as heard on Rage for Order, and texture of Promised Land. And it's super heavy. 
Vocalist Todd La Torre hits it out of the park with his uncanny similarity to previous vocalist Geoff Tate. To be fair, Todd does acknowledge that Tate is an inspiration for him vocally. 
The guitar work of Micheal Wilton and Parker Lundgren is superb as they weave complex arrangements between their instruments. Drummer Scott Rockenfield was absent from this recording and features vocalist Todd La Torre on drums. And he does a fantastic job. It turns out Todd was first and foremost a drummer and got into singing later on in his musical career. 
Bassist Eddie Jackson is as solid as ever holding down the lower end spectrum. 
Over all a must buy for any Metal and Queensryche fan.

"The vocals hearken back to the heightened expressive style of David Bowie or Peter Hammill."

"Wilton Said has always, to my ears, has always thrown out the rule book on progressive rock and re-written it to suite their musical ideals."
"It's by far one of the better, dare I say slightly more original progressive pop-rock band to come cross my hands in a long while.”

“Wilton himself is a master at stage presence, presenting different aspects of the music like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat. The songs presented on 'The View' capture that same quality.”
“This is music that cries out to be listened to, to be seen in all its kaleidoscopic glory.”
"If Peter Gabriel and Fish are in your catalogue of prog, then add this one, and quickly. The music is powerful and evocative, the lyrics are startling in their clarity, the concepts challenging."
Doug LeBlanc - Canadian Progressive Music Society

"Sonically the band has forged a sound that focuses heavily on rock, with buzzing guitars, a punchy rhythm section, and Said’s dramatic, inflected vocals flitting in and out of the mix."
Bill Knispel – Bills Prog Log www.billsprogblog.blogspot.com

“Wilton Said... is a musician whose work should be welcomed for it’s fresh and unique sounds, something that’s appealing in a world where one-beat alternative rock bands and cash-cow boy bands seems to dominate the airwaves.”
Anthony Furey-etc...news

“Wilton Said has a captivating voice...Said has a way of letting his voice give a whole new perspective to the music being played”.
Nessim Halioua - Left Off The Dial

“Said purposefully steers clear of the unimaginative and mundane.”
Andrew Matte-Town Crier

“Wilton is a graduate of York University in musical composition, and he translates his knowledge and skills into the rock arena.”
Bill MacLean-Beach Metro News

“This is pretty interesting stuff. I can hear bits and pieces of artists like Queen, Roxy Music, and David Bowie but in no way are they derivative. They have infused a classic guitar sound from the 70's with a modern sensibility that sounds fresh and exciting.”
Jon Neudorf - Progressive Ears www.progressiveears.com
