“The Sofa Quartet(…) does it once again! What is it they do excactly? – They make a virtuoso record that leads you to believe that the musicians behind it must have lived a few lives on each of their instruments.” – Allan E. Petersen, Rootszone (DK)

“(…)the whole album is fascinating from start to finish: fantastically well played, fun and flawless at the same time. This is a record that invites you to go see the band live as soon as the opportunity presents itself, which I hope will be soon by the way.”

“…The tunes and arrangements are very diverse and the members of the quartet are technically brilliant. When everything comes together it becomes a beautiful collection of traditional music; some new, some old.”
