»Adding another strong effort to his already impressive output, the guitarist appears again to be one of the most intriguing musicians around, and who knows what he has in store for us?«
(ALLMUSIC, Alain Drouot, May 2008, USA)

»Instrumentally, Salamon's style is quite recognizable, despite his eclectic tastes and constantly changing tone…Joy was in the room that night, and we are fortunate to be able to bathe in it through this fabulous, highly recommended recording.«
(ALLABOUTJAZZ, Budd Kopman, January 2007, USA)

»Salamon emphasizes improvisation, but he's providing ever more sophisticated contexts to challenge both himself and his bandmates. His compositions are becoming increasingly mercurial, but in the best sense of the word. Salamon is no longer an up-and-comer: he deserves to be considered in the same breath as contemporary guitar innovators like Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ben Monder and Adam Rogers.«
(ALLABOUTJAZZ, John Kelman, December 2006, USA)

»Slovenian jazz guitarist Sam Salamon’s flourishing discography communicates diversity, excitement and ferocious chops among other niceties, as his stature within the global jazz community is on the rise… Possessing a monstrous technique and an intense desire to navigate multiple jazz related genres, Salamon’s illimitable enthusiasm is exemplified on this inspiring release.«
(EJAZZNEWS, Glenn Astarita, December 2006, USA)

»Salamon lets his music speak in several tongues. In doing so, he does not forsake logic or cohesion. As a guitar player, he lets insight hatch improvisation. Together they make for a winning combination.«
(ALLABOUTJAZZ, Jerry D'Souza, November 2006, USA)

»Salamon has already developed his own modern language on guitar. He has been for some time one of the really most fascinating guitarists of the younger jazz generation.«
(AGAS, Alexander Schmitz, 2005, Germany)
