"Lead single and video Rise Up is thumping from the get go, reminding you of early Incubus or NickelBack on steroids, whilst the vocal from lead singer Scot McGiveron is thunderous and dominant. The guitar line in the chorus really delivers an enjoyable rise before the track audibly goes from strength to strength."
"Devolver is a perfectly executed album."
