“(...) Il disco si presenti molto preciso, intenso, abile a creare persorsi inestricabili ed a trovarne la via di uscita divertendo e divertendosi a sua volta.”, in All About Jazz, Maio 2010, Italy

“(…) A guitarra de Mário Delgado está cada vez mais inventiva e ousada, a bateria de José Salgueiro ganha solidez e versatilidade, Barretto ganhou desenvoltura nos solos e no uso do arco , mostrando que o trio aproveitou bem os sete anos transcorridos desde o último registo”, in Time Out, Abril 2010, Portugal
