'Control and Resistance' was hailed by Guitar World magazine as one of ‘The Top Ten Shred Albums of the 80’s’ in a retrospective feature. “Sounding like the twisted scion of Metallica and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, WatchTower was the most brilliant weird band of its time. Guitarist Ron Jarzombek, with his complex harmony solos, strange scales and furious staccato lead bursts, performs tricks on his guitar that will leave you more than sufficiently breathless.”
