    It certainly recalls the space-age jazzers whose careers ran parallel to them. [Dec 2012, p.75]

    What's extraordinary about Otherworldly--its expressive saxophone blare, heavy afro-funk workouts, hepcat proto-rapping and unyielding positive vibes--is that it feels like these dudes haven't aged a damn day.

    Pretty much all of Otherworldly is liberating for one reason or another.

    Their comeback is an even more demanding listen. [Dec 2012, p.87]

    This improbable return could almost be a relic excavated from their mid-'70s heyday. [Dec 2012, p.110]

    The jazz moments here are thin, singsongy, almost marcato melodies. [Oct 2012, p.64]
