    In short, this is an impressive debut album that attests to the originality and expressiveness of its author.

    This fierce debut [is] an essential purchase for anyone who has fallen for the jazzier end of the Ethiopiques spectrum. [Sep 2012, p.97]

    Guzo is ambitious and the discipline makes an irrepressible impact, the standard of playing from Yerard teachers or professional Ethiopian or British musicians is high, and everyone sounds tightly united, but the jazz makes it limber.
  4. Exquisitely poised solo pieces that subtly pay homage to the likes of fellow keyboard masters Abdullah Ibrahim and Erik Satie.

    Yirga wears his influences too obviously on the introspective solo pieces, but these are early days. [Aug 2012, p.83]
