What some said about first album "Call Of The Cosmos":

“Baudelaire once wrote, ‘music excavates heaven’. Listen to this record and you might just have to agree.” ANDREW WEATHERALL / MOJO

“Think Lee Hazelwood produced by Joe Meek – perfectly realized and revealing a commercial side to Roswell previously unheard / viewed through the lens of Syd Barrett and Kevin Ayers” LOIS WILSON/MOJO

"Rosco uses his knowledge of the music, acid and crucial fundamentals of the genre to create a mini-masterpiece" KRIS NEEDS/SHINDIG

"A topside full of pulsing spectral tunes and a flipside like a '60s sci-fi soundtrack mixed with 'Echoes' of Pink Floyd. An otherworldly delight!" MARK ELLEN
