“Musillami’s playing simply glows here—he’s red hot with energy, and he lacks none of the technical prowess necessary to communicate this fire. Very few modern jazz quartet records display this level of focus and clarity; listeners eager to jump on for a blistering ride will find op-ed an unusually exciting sonic voyage.”—AllAboutJazz

“Collectively bassist Mario Pavone, guitarist Michael Musillami, pianist Peter Madsen, and drummer Michael Sarin produce a lively, ricocheting swing and it keeps listeners on their toes.”—JazzTimes

“The guitarist has in fact never sounded better on record; his solo on the funk-inspired ‘Shorty’ is not to be missed. If anything, this sophomore outing is even more focused and rewarding than the band's highly recommended 2000 debut disc. Their edgy, rhythmically charged repertoire continues to defy easy categorization. In the field of modern creative music, they have few equals.”—All Music Guide
