“The record can be highly recommended to the jazz listener who needs to be challenged with some string instruments. Or
the classical music listener who has to hear one of the best Danish drummers of all time. ” – Niels Overgârd, Jazz Nyt

“Talented Frederik Biilow’s resilient and extremely dynamic drumming connects in a new way traditional rock-like 2- and 4-beats with the light and wild dancing that the older generation recalls from, for example, Jack DeJohnette and Jon Christensen. Jazz Special 2015

“Yes, then there is just polyrhythms behind it all. Frederik Bülow delivers technically difficult things as the most natural thing in the world. ” Peter Rahbek, Jazz Special
