"...a fabulous album - probably the most impressive showcase of the varied talents of the collective and of Fernandes compositional and creative skills."
- Jeremy Keens, Ampersand, etc. (Australia)

"Eccentric, self-indulgent, occasionally humorous, with more than a bucketful of talent in each of the thirteen people involved."
- Antony Burgess, Metamorphic Journeyman (UK)

"Dieses aussergewöhnliche Album ist ein experimentelles, improvisatives Hybrid, ein Meilenstein moderner Musik. Wurzeln und Zukunft in einem. Ein Muss."
