"...So we have a really diverse CD of musical styles and lyrical thought. I’ve known for some time that artists can be weird but this rather bizarre mixture of musical textures and mental depravity just goes directly to that point. This is a dark CD that may not suit all who listen but I suspect if you are seeking something to stimulate your metal and musical senses then this CD will work for you."

"...Skyward is a concept of modern prog with a strong leaning towards classic 70's styles and sounds full of melodies ands riffs and complex arrangements that delve into the darkside of the mind. Unless you never stray from mainstream prog without a note from your mum or have suicidal tendancies, Skyward could be that essential purchase you've been looking for this year. Recommended."

"The music on Skyward resides comfortably in the symphonic realm, more in feel with its 70s antecedents than with the neo prog style, which tends to dominate today. The music borrows not only from the genre’s “golden age?but also owes a slight debt to the AORish style, as exemplified by the likes of Rush, Triumph and Zebra ?guitar heavy alacrity and many intense passages of trade-offs with layered keyboards and an energetic rhythm section."

"...the music is more in the field of the progressive hard-rock although very progressive and especially with the work on the guitar which is often, even mostly hard-rock in the high moments. But I tell you another time in a very progressive offshoot, some moments are even only in a progressive way, with Melotron, Organ and other old sounds. Their influences are very well hidden, this show that the band is already very mature, and it's well good for a first CD."

"...The music here is hard-edged symphonic prog. The songs are varied, the compositions imaginative, and although no two songs sound the same there are common threads that successfully pull it together as a cohesive block of music. Styes breaks molds with a Van Der Graaff Generator / Discipline disdain for convention, and while it is far from avant garde, it is certainly unusual and refreshingly original. Highlights in the instrumentation are the synth, Mellotron, electric piano, acoustic guitar and well-played lead guitar."

"If you're impressed by the complexity and virtuosity of progressive rock bands, Acuity will set your rod permanently a-twirl...If the prog underground isn't aware of Acuity yet, it needs to wake the heck up."
