    Hacke and Picciotto narrate with unwholesome relish.

    The music and the narrative are excellently executed by four top-rate professionals who’ve got your respect (and attention) by earning it.

    With this album, Ministry Of Wolves have done both Anne Sexton and the Brothers Grimm proud; bringing their own gothic legacy to bear, and returning their work to the dark forests where they belong.

    The music works best when combined with the lurid wit and fruity, odd sonics deployed. [Apr 2014, p.115]

    This set is sly, funny, cunning, occasionally evil, and entertaining throughout.

    This is a very nice and refreshing album, but in a way you wouldn't expect. Amazing instrumentals paired with a witty yet sort of haunting narrative make for a very different wild ride on this album. If you are into Spoken-Word, Folklore, and Narrative Singer-Songwriter music, then definitely give this album a try.
