Praise for The Bloody Beetroots:
"Out of Sight" (which also features Youth) finds the old Beatle appealing to the stadium EDM crowd in a heavily thumping, airily melodic track on which he wails in his finest Little Richard mode.”

"Out of Sight" works because Rifo doesn't make the brand of pure, upbeat progressive house that's most familiar to dance music festival mainstage audiences, but rather an intriguing blend of punk, rock and dance. – Huffington Post
“It’s not your parents’ McCartney tune, but it’s bound to introduce a whole club-goin’, rave-lovin’ generation to the joys of Macca.” –Consequence of Sound
“The Bloody Beetroots arena-electronica paired with Paul McCartney’s vocal stylings is a match made in crossover heaven. Lush piano melodies and the ex-Beatles anthemic crooning fits effortlessly alongside the Beetroots growling synthesizers and thunderous kick drums. Delivered only as the Beetroots could, the track’s mellow, classic rock chorus dazzles before the mix dives deep into the underbelly of dark electronica.” – Dancing Astronaut
