Alternative Addiction:

"Experience” is a fun record from Kaleido and overall a great rock record that doesn’t sound like anything anybody else is putting out right now. 

Beneath The Grid: 

Pull Quote: "Christina Chriss proves she's a more than capable front woman with enough energy, enthusiasm, and talent to make her own mark in the music world".

Concert Crap:
Pull Quote:
"Kaleido has blasted themselves firmly onto the scene with Experience, and don’t expect them to go away anytime soon. Actually, start learning the words to their songs now, because you’ll be seeing them around for a very long time"!

Dark Art Conspiracy:

Pull Quote: "Kaleido's “EXPERIENCE” is straight-ahead, unadulterated, feel it in your soul rock with flourishes of pop, R&B, punk & funk undertones – and hooks for days"!
JP's Music blog: 

Pull Quote: "This five-piece band is a stadium act ready to unleash their music on the masses"!
Metalholic (Live Show review): 

Pull Quote: "Kaleido dropped its stunning debut album Experience last month, and the band’s live set quickly proved they are no studio creation. In fact, Kaleido delivered the surprise set of the night...  Vocalist Christina Chriss owned the stage with her fearless presence and play-for-keeps attitude".

Modern Rock Reviews: 

Pull Quote: "Kaleido starts with unrelenting energy on "Experience" and never misses a single stride on this relentless album run through sound, performances and vocals".
National Rock Review:

Pull Quote: "Christina Chriss is a hurricane of a frontwoman, sprinting across the stage, leaping off the drum riser, getting up close to the enraptured crowd. She is a ball of energy that never quits, her voice soaring... This band’s talent and power and not be denied".

New Transcendence: 

Pull Quote: "Experience" is an album that shows, without fail, just how incredible Kaleido is".

Northeast Rock Review: 

Pull Quote: "If you are looking for some fresh new rock music, with a little bit of everything from No Doubt to Guns N’ Roses - you need to check out Kaleido and their new album “EXPERIENCE”!

Pure Grain Audio interview:

Rock All Photography:

Pull Quote: "At the core, Kaleido is reminiscent of the piss-and-vinegar, stadium rock of a young Guns N’ Roses crossed and fused with the lovable, fun and energetic sensibilities of an early No Doubt. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety".

Rock Documented:

Pull Quote: Kaleido's "Experience" LP has so many turns it rivals a rollercoaster, but hold on to the ride because it’s worth the thrill"!

Raw Ramp: 

Pull Quote: "Detroit’s KALEIDO take a fresh view of traditional of rock ‘n’ roll with their debut full-length album "Experience" – it's a guileless celebration of all that’s best about pure and loveable soul/rock flecked with pop embellishments, and with the kind of smoothness you only find in R&B plus a dab or two of punk ‘n’  funk"!

Rock On The Rise:
Pull Quote:
"Christina Chriss is filled with so much talent in not only her vocal skills but in the delivery, meter, and lyrical content. She exudes a powerhouse female front persona the likes we have not seen since the early days of No Doubt or the power of Shirley Manson of Garbage".

Rock Revolt Magazine: 

Pull Quote:  "Authentic and memorable songs, combined with an explosive live show"!

Rock Titan TV:

Pull Quote: "After meeting the entire band in person, you could immediately tell they possessed that “It” factor which would propel them to greatness".
