"New York’s Mercury Landing have touched upon a unique fusion of space-rock, synthesizer fueled electronica and old school jam that is both progressive and comfortably familiar.

"Eyes Against the Sky is the perfect soundtrack to a key party—swinging music for swingers with lots of funky guitar and keyboard action."--Abby Aronofsky, Penthouse Magazin
"Eyes Against the Sky is an eclectic mix of funk and rock music. It is a great listen from front to back, which is a rarity in today's music world." --John Pasquale, Booking and Event Planning for Hard Rock Caf
