• "You can bet your bottom dollar that somewhere at the opposite end of the Time Tunnel, Winterhawk's seven-minute piece de resistance 'Period of Change' is more revered than Kansas's 'Dust in The Wind,' and Macarus is playing in Deep Purple instead of Steve Morse. Seriously, Winterhawk are that good."- Geoff Barton (Classic Rock)

• "In my past twenty years as an addict of heavy guitar music, I have never heard anyone who played the electric guitar like Jordan Macarus. The three songs that Macarus wrote on his own in 1979 ('Period of change', 'Revival' and 'Free to Live') I shall take with me into my grave, because I don't think I will ever hear anything like that again even in the afterlife." - Sacred Metal
• "It's unquestionably the regularly dazzling fretwork of guitarist Jordan Macarus that provides the foundation of Winterhawk's every move. Whether harmonizing with himself, Thin Lizzy-like, on most every number, alternating gently picked classical guitar figures with crunchy power chords à la Randy Rhoads on the title track, or peeling off a jazzy, fleet-fingered display while proving quite the capable singer himself on 'Ace in the Hole,' Macarus is in fine form, and even without any of the above, one would only need to hear his beautifully fluid soloing on the stunning album centerpiece 'Period of Change' ... to realize that here was a particularly innate and versatile six-string talent. " - AllMusic (Eduardo Rivadavia)

• "Simply one of the greatest guitar oriented hard rock albums of all time.... Jordan Macarus can be really proud of his stunning abilities in guitar playing (and composing as well). " - Just Real Diamonds blog

• "If I could take any single record with me to a desert island, this would be it." - Enlightened Chaos

• "...midwest hardrock band whose melodic hardrock is some of the best we've heard; great guitar leads and songs in a Jeronimo-Jericho-Masters zone..." - Subliminal Sounds

• "...recommended to all hard rockers.." - Metal Invader

• "...brilliant guitar playing, great singing.." - Snakepit

• "A music torrent bursts out full of imposing, extra terrestial, destructive solos that will lead you to the greatest orgasm you ever had.." - Steel Conjuring
