Choice words of journalistic excellence about OXCART:


….”this ( Beekeeper Constellation) is a game changing album for this band. I think this one has the capacity and sound to help break the band big....They have created a piece of art full of many genres and moods..."Delusions" is full of that heralding drum assault at the opening. Almost like a throwback to "The Immigrant Song", the drums, and then blazing guitars of this song make it one of the best tracks on the album. Baker's vocals are powerful and a mix between David Gilmour and some of the leading grunge artists from this neck of the woods....” Rating : 4 out of 4 stars Mark Johnson / Sea of Tranquility 5/15/11

“…. an extremely melodic set of ten (metal?) songs, just stretching into 50 minutes and at times back to the 1970s. ...“Nationalism Anthem” takes over immediately, there’s more Pink Floyd in this than you can imagine, until, that is, a heavier, Deep Purple(sque) vibe interrupts proceedings, and takes over...” Leicester Bangs 7-1-11

“...a fluid, trippy-yet-muscular slice of Coheed And Cambria / The Sword-inspired space opera...” Shout4Music 6-29-11

THE EQUATION ( 2008 ) :

“…Oxcart's 2008 album, "The Equation," is a concept album about the drudgery of working a dead-end job and how one man undergoes an odyssey of self-discovery. Think "Office Space" as directed by Terry Gilliam. In the course of 13 songs, the Everyman hero commutes from his bed to the office to the desert and back again. The playing also is epic. Slabs of metal guitar break into shards of delicate keyboard work. Shouted vocals and pretty pop moments are separated by thin membranes of ambient sound…” The Oregonian A&E 2/27/10

‘Wishes’ comes on like Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace gate crashing a studio session with Eagles of Death Metal in tow, heralded by fuzzed out lo-fi production. The more you listen to this record, the more you wish other musicians had this multiplicity. Its' a superb ensemble of songs which keeps you on tenterhooks throughout the course of the album. Rating: 8 out of 10 stars Whisperin and Hollerin 2/18/09

(Oxcart) has crafted a Modern day Prog Rock Opera that has us name checking every pertinent band/album from Prog’s glory years stirred with the Hammer of the Gods metal influences of the of the best Modern Metal Prog Rocks albums of this era. The Equation has been written…" Independisc 4/20/09

…”Shifting direction continually, Oxcart purveys anything from Stooges CBGB's heyday punk in 'Tetherball' to Metallica-like crashing riffs and scratchy space-out rock in 'Equation', drawing further influences from, Canadian band Our Lady Peace and Queens of the Stone Age. In a day of listening to sub-standard albums, a pedestal was duly pulled out for this piece of apocalyptic-rock…” Shout4Music / Ash Meikle
