“WILLIAM OCEAN edged out SANJAR THE DESTROYER by a narrow margin in a highly post-modern interpretive act as good as anything I’ve seen thus far and then some. It was a conceptual masterpiece and psychologically taut, thematically adhering to oceanic abstractions: a metal cover of the “Titanic” song, a nod to Ritchie Tenenbaum on board the Queen Helena destined for the Eastern seaboard, a 24-foot waving banner rolling across the sell-out crowd at twelve knots, and assless chaps.” -US Air Guitar Blog
