"Code" is an ambitious statement. Song-oriented, spacious yet focused. Whether via seductive insistence, as in the record's opening track "Equation," or by frenetic contradiction, as delivered in "Trust" (a song featured on the current CD samplers of Musician and Guitar World magazines), "Code" makes no excuses and takes no prisoners. Early reviews of "Code" concur:
"Robby Aceto creates that rarest of birds, atmospheric music with an edge. Guitars scream and swirl over liquid loops, funky rhythms and ethnic percussion...ambient aggression."Robby has toured extensively this year with Italian pop-phenom Alice in a band that features Japan members Mick Karn and Steve Jansen. As the Alice tour winds down this summer, an autumn tour is in the works for Robby and Red Letter in support of "Code." More to come on that.
- Michael Ross, Guitar Player magazine
"Code...has the potential to create serious ripples in contemporary rock waters...ballsy and eclectic arrangements, spiked with a heavy dose of ripping guitar acrobatics."
- Anil Prasad, Innerviews
"Four Stars!" - Guitar World
