    Mount Wittenberg Orca is able to show cohesive songs, vocals and choir, and beautiful lyrics. The EP nicely fits in its intends and its messages. The Björk collaboration is, as expected, splendid.

    Mount Wittenberg Orca contains some "Medulla" type of productions from Björk, with different layers of voices tracks mixed together; the narrative side of this project fits the format. The harmony between the two collaborators matches well. Plus, Björk is in an unknown territory in her career, the indie / pop-rock music.

    Relentless vocal shards create the sensation of being stabbed in the head with a whalebone comb, but when voices and concept coalesce... you begin to see the point. [Dec. 2011 p. 98]

    Just when you thought Bjork had plumbed and conquered every depth and summit of her range, Dirty Projectors have shepherded her to newer pastures. [Dec 2011, p.81]

    A brief but powerful statement, Mount Wittenberg Orca brings remarkably creative artists together for a good cause, and ends up bringing out the best in all of them in the process.
