  1. In all seriousness, this is an utterly brilliant experiment that is carried out with excellent style.
  2. The imprint scores its hat-trick with Ouliposaliva: the entree of Angil and the Hiddentracks, one of the most bizarre/bankable records to air outside of its creators’ Parisian side-streets.

    The result is a twilight world where Robert Wyatt and John Coltrane rub shoulders with Why? and Vernon Elliott. Mad, but quite magical. [Dec 2008, p.81]
  4. This truly is an album you can’t just dip into, it’s a winning concept. And though it may not win millions of hearts, for those with time, it’s a truly rewarding experience.
  5. What makes this inspirational lyrical gimmick work is the quality of the songs and the sure-footedness of Mottet's approach to sound, a not-so-distant European relative of the Elephant 6 palette.
  6. While undoubtedly inventive, the album wears thin far too soon. [Winter 2009, p.78]
  7. Despite the janky piano, dissonant woodwind arrangements, and Angil’s sometimes abrasive vocal delivery, it all works well. You haven’t heard this album before, and that is very refreshing.
