Quotes Reviews: 
“Top Fuel Tendencies“ 


“ We can strongly recommend this new album from SQY Rocking Team. Not many bands in Holland play this kind of music, so we are already not overloaded with a dozen of these bands, but on top of this, these 4 guys are absolutely among the best we have “.

“ Now here is their new album, and it is filled with ten hard and powerful rock tunes so if you are into honest and cool rock music, then this is really something worth of checking out.”
Aardschok Magazine Holland

“ These Dutch hardrock 'n' rollers play loud as fuck ! No childish bullshit, but Dutch hardrock which could have had LA as its base. Great southern sleaze, stoner hardrock with heavy guitars, combined with melodic ( poly-phonic ) vocals. This is how hardrock should sound like, honest and sincere. An absolute recommendation if you like bands as : Molly Hatched, Motorhead en Kiss. Definitely buy this CD and make sure to go and watch them live !“
Violent Moshground Magazine

“ During the songs Pear Shaped Beauty and She Says the band takes a little break, but for the rest of the album they play at full speed. A typical CD to listen to while you’re on the road. Conclusion : an adult record with a collection of REAL songs.“
