‘Wicked funk, pile-driving rock or loping reggae underpin their lucid or sinuous melodies’
- John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

‘The Subterraneans will almost certainly demand a re-think of how many people considered the music once called ‘fusion’.’
- Peter Wockner, Limelight Sep 2010

The band is one of Sydney’s strongest live acts, and this brilliant studio debut catches all that excitement, and delivers it with a mighty sonic punch.’
- John Shand SMH June 2010

‘Effects from Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin and others are utilised inventively but the album is no mere exercise in sampling: it’s a highly original collection amalgamating rock influences into contemporary jazz expression.’
- John McBeath The Australian
