- (Metronome Magazine/July2017) Top 5 of July "New Hampshire based rockers, Crimes in Graceland feature brothers: bassist Ry'al Lindgren, guitarist Ryan Lindgren, drummer Roby Lindgren and guitarist Greg Fowler. No strangers to the pages of Metronome or the legions of New Hampshire rock and roll fans, the Lindgren brothers along with friend /bandmate Greg Fowler have been making no nonsense rock and roll for the better part of the new millennium. On their latest effort, Elvis In Wonderland, Crimes in Graceland comes off as a tightly polished act delivering well penned songs that shake the rafters from start to finish. Songs that turn heads include the raving "Got A Hold of You," the rancorous"32 Years," the bombastic "Grab Myself A Bullet," the rockin' "Lie and Die," and the blazing hard rock anthem "It's All Rock and Roll," Boasting tight performances of well written song, Crimes in Graceland proves to be a band of rockers who have come of age. Good stuff! " (Doug Sloan)

- (Northeast Performer/ November 2006) "Crimes in Graceland are baddass, they dress in black, they play songs with titles like "Sobriety Sucks" and "Marry a Bitch". "Musically the primary reference points are '70s arena rock (KISS, Van Halen) with older brother Roby Lindgren, obviously the Gene Simmons to Ry'al's Paul Stanley, with a little punk and country thrown in to mix things up." "Three Ring Circus's closer a country tune called "Don't Love ya" shows them loosening up a bit, and it happens to be the best track on the album". (Brett Cromwell)
- (Metronome magazine /july 2006) "The Lindgren brothers have become well known on the New Hampshire music scene for their individual involvement with numerous rock acts over the years, so it's only fitting that Ry'al Ryan and Roby finally join forces to form their own band, cleverly coined, Crimes In Graceland. After just one listen,you quickly surmise that their music is anything but what Elvis would, or could, offer up. Instead what the Lindgrens serve listeners is cranked-out guitars,forceful vocals and biting riffs that permeate track after track of "Three Ring Circus". There's no mistaking that this family of brothers are a proud, rockin' bunch that loves to wake the neighbors. Best tracks include the album opener "Matter of Time","Sobriety Sucks","Half Hour Man" and the comedic country twang of "Don't love Ya". (Doug Sloan)
