"Norwegian Erik Wøllo is one of the most consistent artists recording today. One of the things I like most about his work is how he has a trademark “sound” which is recognizable, but yet he never overtly repeats himself. Only the best artists can accomplish this over time and he does it with apparent ease. His music always comes across as being both stimulating from an intellectual standpoint yet emotionally satisfying as well." -Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter 2007
