Our work has been praised in Mojo Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Post, Uncut, Record Collector, Q Magazine, The Observer, Fox News, The Boston Globe, Rolling Stone and The Washington Post among many others. Here is small sample of our recent press:
“When you run across a brand issuing exemplary product, that company needs to be lauded by name..and if the issuing agency continues to excel, then commemoration of the fact continues. Why? Well, for the same reason as lauding an individual musician or group: you want to see and hear more, doncha? Okay then, sing praises! Encourage ’em…Thus, when you wish to see the ne plus ultra in music journalism on film, when you want to know where others are lacking, you need to go to Eagle and then to [Prism], Eagle’s successor…Only then will you be able to form a worthy opinion about the efforts of others. After that, go ahead and write me; at that point, your analysis will be coherent.
This new SI release about Bob Dylan and The Band is the latest proof. It views the same way a good book reads, and the chronography of detail is a matter of tension and resolve, flowlines of data, side pools of anecdotalism, and all the needed literary devices—of course surfeited with images, music, etc.”
– Acoustic Music. On “Down In The Flood”
“Strange Fruit…leaps into excellence. If you want to see people who were there – and, for once, not the usual suspects, but people who knew what it was like to not want to go into an increasingly bad environment, people who experienced first hand the mixed blessing of hands-on intervention by a Beatles – then this is the place to go. What you leave this film with is an understanding of the sheer Catch 22-ness of it all – the greatest band of all time think your music is great, but signing to their label may end your career. Strange Fruit may be a documentary about a record label, but it’s fitting, sad and beautiful that it ends with the only song about a record label that can make you cry, Badfinger’s gorgeous “Apple Of My Eye”.
-David Quantick. Uncut Magazine. On “Strange Fruit – The Story of Apple Records”.: Full Page, 8/10 “Unearthing The Rotten Core Of The Fab Four’s Infamous Label.”

Brian Wilson: Songwriter 1962-1969
“**** Revealing documentary film reassesses the great beach boy and his music….the film travels some distance towards understanding the ingredients that went into the music”. – Uncut Magazine
“Superior dissection of the Beach Boy’s life and craft…unusually fresh and insightful”. – Mojo.

Metal Machine Music: Nine Inch Nails And The Industrial Uprising

Leonard Cohen’s Beautiful Losers
“The makers of this documentary on what shaped Cohen’s work were smart enough to realise that a ‘music that influenced’ template would not suffice…there’s as good an examination as could fit 110 watchable minutes.” – Sylvie Simmons, Mojo Magazine
