"...He has developed a style of his own as all Sahaswan gharana singers...
...One would therefore be inclined to believe that Rashid Khan's individuality is also traditional...
...He has inherited from his guru Ustad Nissar Hussain, his strongest point, namely, uniform clarity in swar as well as raga in all layas, slow, medium and fast."

"A successful classical vocalist, the magic of his voice has cast a spell over his audiences, making him by far one of the most popular vocalists of his generation. Pt. Bhimsen Joshi is believed to have said of him 'there is now at least one person in sight who is an assurance for the furure of Indian vocal music'.

Eulogies have poured in from various other quarters as well as with critics labelling him 'today's greatest...a successor to the Bade Ghulam Ali and Amir Khan generation.'"

"Music lovers in Lucknow longed to hear this young Ustad hailing from Badaun in U.P., but the chance came only when the Uttar Dakshin Cultural Organization scheduled him in their recent 22nd Tansen-Tyagaraja Festival' 97. His concert in the second evening of the festival was one of the most memorable vocal recitals heard in Lucknow in recent times; so captivated was the audience that twice when he tried to conclude his concert, they flooded him with requests which he gladly fulfilled. His rich sorous voice and his entire approach revealed a maturity far beyond his 30 years!"

"Rashid Khan's voice has a mesmeric quality. His raga Bageshree was majestic, moving with stately gait up the gradient of notes to reach the summit, giving listeners a breathtaking view of the panorama of the raga. He sang three compositions, the smooth molten gold of his voice flowing through badhat into well-knit sargams. Punchy taans spices up the catchy teental and drut ektaal bandishes."

"Young Rashid Khan, a teenager breaking previous records of all maestros put together. That he is a prodigy there is no doubt. ......The entire Siri Fort auditorium reverberated with haunting strains of Pooriya and Behag. It was an unending succession of cascades of musical phrases in vilambit. .........if Pooriya was haunting, Behag was superb. There was a complete change of attitude in handling this feminine raga and one had his heart's pleasure."

"..who would have thought that Rashid Khan would become the cult figure on the classical circuit when he has barely crossed into his twenties. ....Rashid's voice produces that cascading energy of a powerful voice that can internalize the effect of a raga with mesmerizing skill. He has naturally taken audiences by storm. ....for Rashid watchers, what matters most is that, after a long time one has encountered a natural genius."
