"On the Brink is a fantastic voyage, a concept album which will make you think, learn and relax to some pretty wonderful music. The orchestration Lazcano uses throughout the story makes this small group sound much larger than it is; those keys are used to awesome effect early in the Intro, and throughout the completely instrumental three or four tracks that follow". - THE PROGRESSIVE ASPECT

"It is a musical work that requires, and deserves, extended listening, to understand all the complexities and, when you do, you will be rewarded richly. Cuyas’ drums bear particular mention for there intensity and skill, they add real depth and solidity to the music but it’s the way that everything gels together to create this intriguing whole that fascinates me the most so, like all the best albums, you are always coming back for more. ‘On The Brink’ is not for the faint hearted. I’m not saying it’s an album aimed more at musicians but, in my opinion, it’s musical theatre for those that love complexity and albums that make you think deeper about everything, including yourself." - PROG RADAR

"Regularly, Alex’s voice has common ground with Neal Morse. There are countless changes in rhythm and melody. Moreover, ‘sweet’ and rocking parts alternate. Furthermore, various symphonic elements are interwoven. Vocals and music are constantly in balance. Conclusion: newcomer Lazleitt has established itself clearly on the map." - ROCKMUZINE

"“On The Brink” is an altogether grandiose symphonic soundscape of epic proportions. This delightful progressive rock project is seamlessly assembled in one thirty seven minute long track combining a musical gathering of ten distinctly separate but interconnecting sections The continuity and flow of the music dictates that the order of the project be played in this manner, rather than spliced up, and certainly the decision to fuse all of the sections together into one single track makes perfect sense from a listening perspective. With an abundance of melodic charm the music takes you on one long colourfal voyage through many varying soundscapes, rather like a river wending its way across different geographical expanses. Such an analogy fits well in describing the extensive range of scenic moods that are integrated into the construction of the musical arrangements both in terms of tempo and time changes." - PROGPLANET

The first compelling strength was recurrent melodies, that helped establish a cohesive whole. The listener is told that the separate tracks are simply demarcations in the longer, single piece of music. The second strength was the number of musical ideas, textures, and tempos throughout. Although the album is relatively brief by progressive rock standards, variety is a defining feature of “On the Brink”. A third strength was the way lyrics and music met and worked together. Starting with a cinematic orchestral passage, it moved rapidly into a dreamy, wistful vocal section of reassurance, challenge, and hope. - PROGRESSIVE ROCK FANATICS
