• Mojo (UK) “A genuine buried treasure.”
• Dusty Groove America (USA) “A legendary bit of funky fusion from the French scene of the 70s: the standout set from Cortex, a combo who’s very heavy on the keyboards! …rolling along in a sound that’s stunningly soulful, and which makes the record one of the hippest European dates from the decade. Tremendous all the way through.”
• Billboard “Ross reads from his scroll of street codes over a Cortex “Prelude A (30 Round)” sample interwoven in slow-tempo Cardiak beat.”
