1. Heath Andrews
“the sound of rocking guitars, pounding basslines, and crashing drums …pop/rock edge makes his [Woolston’s] music incredibly accessible … very distinct alternative rock sound … akin to something from Foo Fighters or a less grungy Pearl Jam … guitars have an almost U2 kind of chiming to them and the drums have a forceful stomp … Peter Woolston has created an album that rocks and inspires with equal measure”
5 out of 5 stars

3. Alex Henderson
“this is a solid outing that paints an attractive picture of his talents as a vocalist, songwriter and guitarist … Woolston specializes in melodic, guitar-powered alternative rock, and it is evident that he has a knack for memorable hooks. Woolston is as infectious on “Dead Man Walking,” “Obsession” and “I Believe In You” as he is on “Better Man Someday” and the title track (all of which he wrote by himself) … Hope On My Horizon is definitely an album that counts its blessings and sees the glass as half full rather than half empty … enjoyable outing”
