(Rolf Nilsén i det svenske musikmagasin "Lira")

"De fire yderst habile musikere leverer på cd'en fornemt sammenspil og stor virtuositet. Kvartetten deltog i årets GLOBENHAGEN-showcase ifm. WOMEX-festivalen (2010), og viste her at materialet i høj grad også fungerer live."
(DMF)

"Knudsen er en brillant guitarist som ikke tøver med at lave nogle harmoniske ekskursioner når temaet kræver det, …men altid inden for rammerne af det traditionelle flamenco sprog. Sådan ! Med en lyd der er fuldstændig aktuel og frisk uden konservatisme. Ren "guitarra jonda" (dyb guitar)."
(Juan Vergillos i dagbladet "Diario de Sevilla")

"Kompositionerne er stilistisk særdeles velproportionerede"
(Verdensmusik magasinet "Djembe")
