"Kicks the last remaining conventions of the piping world so far into touch that ball boys would need motorbikes to get them back again... a stunning tour de force of an album which delights, astounds, even amuses and rewards each listen with another sound that hadn't revealed itself before... a riff which makes Wolfstone sound like the Spice Girls... is a class album and will have repercussions on the way pipe music is recorded for many years to come. Few who follow will reach the standards attained here." (The Living Tradition)
