"A thoroughly enjoyable, totally hypnotic, and utterly unique listening experience."

On this their third and best album They continue two experiment with the new textures That Materialise out of their unusual line up while remaining accessible and melody centered. Lovely stuff. “

'words like “hypnotic” and “mesmerizing” are a bit shopworn, but they’re perfectly applicable in describing what you’ll hear if you have the good sense to get this CD.'

"The album is important for its merging of cultures and ideas, but also for the natural symbiosis the musicians demonstrate, which never feels forced. "
