    This is crystalline and intoxicating: an album to return to repeatedly for inspiration. [Feb 2011, p.48]

    Uneasy listening at its ghost-in-the-machine best. [Apr 2011, p.104]

    En Form for Bla feels of its own space and location rather than simply an addendum.
  4. Feb 17, 2011
    Unique: rarely meant, but here the only possible description for the sounds these four remarkable players emit.
  5. This is meditative, spacious, profoundly dark music, evidently haunted by Miles Davis's early-1970s excursions into free electronica, as well as the wolves of the Nordic imagination.
  6. Feb 17, 2011
    En Form For Bla is a record where it's tempting and possible to zone out of and forget that you're even listening, let alone any specifics of sound.

    While there are moments where En Form for Bla (named for the Oslo club where it was recorded) rolls right over you like a rogue wave, more often it sounds like the main action was situated a couple rooms away from the microphones.

    Abstract, but curiously engaging. [Mar 2011, p.83]
