Magnificent sounds, exemplary coordination of the single parts, perceivable humbleness, admirable equilibrium between reverberating percussiveness, quiet collective percolations and abrasive dynamism. Substances spreading around without caring if you understand or not, but once the actual nature of the improvisation becomes a little clearer there’s no looking back to weaker stuff. A masterpiece, that’s what it is. >> Massimo Ricci, Touching Extreme
You know it: this kind of improvisation project succeeds or fails following rules that depend more on the disposition of everyone involved – some called it magic. Well, the magic sure works on this superb album.  >> François Couture, Monsieur Délire
The playing here is exceptional, and the musicians seem to know each other well, and appear to have set off with the general mood already settled, the palette and brushes in place and just the canvas to fill. (…). A beautiful hour of music.  >>  Richard Pinnell, The Watchfull Ear
Le voyage Vers l’île paresseuse, paradoxalement onirique (par sa nouveauté) et naturaliste (par sa précision et sa clarté), nous entraîne sur des territoires beaux, délicats et poétiques, parfois sombres ou languissants, mais en tout cas toujours intenses, riches, profonds et neufs.  >>  Julien Héraud, Impro-sphère
