....most striking about this album is the way in which the musicians anticipate and respond to each other...no single member outshines another... Uuskyla provides a foundational groove through most of the album...I often wonder whether so many performances really need to be documented and presented to the public.

Oslo Hærverk on Avant Music News' list of "Excellent Releases first half of 2018"

They seem more refined and have progressed considerably on this album. Good Scandinavian avant garde. - Unfretted.com about Oslo Hærverk.
