“I loved it, every minute.”
- MEIRA BAUSTEIN CO-FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF THE WOODSTOCK FILM FESTIVAL

“…The film is educational, entertaining, and full of moments that will leave music fans in awe (hearing Crosby talk about sitting beside Neil Young as he wrote “Ohio”, his song about the shootings at Kent State on May 4, 1970, is so powerful that it gave me goosebumps).”
- BRIAN MCKECHNIE, CITYNEWS.CA

“Inspiring, breathtaking and riveting, this documentary is proof that good in the world still exists. The best thing about the film is the inclusion of the songs and concerts performed. The wide range of music is already worth the price of admission. This film is the better companion piece and is not to be confused to the recent doc SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION which tells the story of the American civil rights movement through powerful music. See SOUNDS LIKE A REVOLUTION to regain faith once again in people and music!”
- GILBERT SEAH, CINEMA EYE

“…The film is at its best when it delineates how the noose gradually tightened on politically charged music at major labels. The doc takes the viewer on a tour of relevant events, from Ice-T’s Cop Killer controversy at Warner Music in 1992 to the Dixie Chicks’ backlash during the lead-up to the Iraq War.”
- GREIG DYMOND, CBC.CA

“Full of concert and political action footage, the doc has terrific energy. But it’s the interviews with the articulate musicians that are most inspiring.”
- SUSAN G. COLE, NOW MAGAZINE

“…A documentary that both salutes the new age of protest music and investigates why it isn’t better known. Love and co-director Jane Michener spent five years talking to artists from Pete Seeger to Michael Franti, and they found a new world where protest is in the air, but not on the airwaves.”
- JAY STONE, CANADA.COM

“If a lot of people see this, it could end up an important film. There’s no doubt it’ll be an underground hit — like the music it covers — but if this can reach a major doc’s audience, a lot more artists will end up making a lot more music that a lot more people will hear.”
- ROCKPEAKS

“Sounds Like a Revolution could be a tonic for the activists still trying to improve the world.”
- JASON ANDERSON, SPINNER
