-   Martin Birke im Musikmagazin InMusic

... their songs are relaxed, not boring, but extremely exciting ... intelligent wave from the US. (SONIC SEDUCER 3/99)

... special mixture of good old wave atmosphere with an exploring modern pop sound ... a very open minded approach of melodic music that's maybe not cliché enough to please the average listener. (SIDE LINE 3/99)

... hymnal voice flow, lively synth beats and Martin's wonderful voice for friends of intelligent minimal electronic dark. (INMUSIC 6/99)

... a beautiful soothing piece of music, which fills the audience with enthusiasm because of its permanent merging of melodies and samples. (FATAL UNDERGROUND 4/99)

... will not only fill fans of Depeche Mode with enthusiasm, but also captivates with its technical perfection, which shows their knowledge how to handle computer and synths. 12 songs, which offer absolutely high level synth pop. I take my hat off! (EXPULS 7/99)
