"raw and utterly infectious...a new genre emerges: garage gamelan" —SPIN Magazine

"seductive...most of this music is on the peaceful side for Bali." —CMJ Monthly

"...if you ever wondered about the musical roots of minimalist composers Philip Glass and Steve Reich, this is the place to look" —Richard Gehr (sonicnet.com)

"...attendant ambience with surprisingly crisp fidelity. As a sophisticated musical travelog of a strange and wonderful place. This is as good as it gets. Outstanding." —Alternative Press Magazine
