"Good tonic for your eyes and ears, opinionated reviews, knee-slapping features." - Websight Magazine
"Fine acerbic NYC style." - The Web Magazine
"This site is really fun and constantly updated." - Internet Underground
"Psycho-pop, post-punk high IQ foray into the wilderness that is the Big Apple's music scene." - Yahoo
"This Manhattan-based music zine starts right in with attitude, though it can't quite cover up the underlying good nature that bubbles up through the hard-bitten, seamy prose." - NetGuide
"With a decidedly New York attitude, this visually appealing site provides interviews, reviews, features, profiles, a bulletin board.... While the angle is somewhat local, the interviews are timely and edgy." - Denizine
"Rock and roll served up New York City style. Music articles, reviews, interviews, RealAudio and Video clips, gossip from the music world, classified ads, and slick graphics. All done with an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek humor. We like." - Suite101
"The server is fast enough and the people behind this one somehow manage to get some pretty impressive face time with legitimate rock stars. Also makes good use of the medium with audio clips galore. And, they've even taken the time to answer the question that's been paining us all for the last year just what makes the Spice Girls suck?" - DigitalCity
"Not an online travel guide, NY Rock appropriates a Big Apple
sensibility in the delivery of its content "Rock and Roll served up
New York City style." Basically, it's an information portal with
spiked hair and neon colors. It has somewhat racy content, too but
don't run away from the Soft Porn Central section, possibly the site's
literary high-tide mark. World Beat offers news notes from all over
the place, complete with photos in some cases. Cartoons, indie reviews, even movie stuff it's all good." - Topica.com
"NY Rock proves itself from the get-go as a smart and simple way to keep in touch with New York's tremendous local scene. Extremely easy to navigate with a clean, sleek design and straight-forward section names unlike the city itself it's next to impossible to get lost wandering around this site.
The "Reviews" section consists mainly of live concert reviews, but also includes an occasional book or CD review. "Classifieds" gives free space to musician want ads, personals and gig and website listings.
In some cases the subject matter deviates from music and stumbles into culture and politics like "True!", a cartoon updated by Daryl Cagle and the "Funny Pages," which includes such classics as "Carmen Electra: 10 (Damn Good) Reasons Why Being Dumped by Dennis Rodman Is Not Necessarily a Bad Thing" and "Do the Spice Girls Suck?"
A one-stop guide to the city's clubs, restaurants, stores, hotels and shows called "NY Hotspots" covers everything for a New York native or visitor's reference needs. For more than musical entertainment, you can even check out "Movie Reviews" or "Soft Porn Central," described by the site as "All of our favorite sex stories on one handy page!"
On the cutting edge of web technology, NYRock.com is chock full of hyperlinks to other, relevant sites and almost everything musically based includes audio clips. Some stuff even has video! If you aren't equipped to open the clips, links for RealPlayer download is made available at the end of the NY Rock homepage.
You name it, NY Rock's got it!" - MTV
