    When I first listened to this album, I really didn't like it. However, after listening to it again, I now realize that it is probably Gogol Bordello's best album yet. It tries out a very different style of music that the band hasn't used before and it really makes this album something special. It's the same ol' Gogol Bordello, with a really beautiful new coat of paint.

    The ferocity in their delivery and the sheer sweep of their eager entreaties create an anthemic exposition, resulting in a series of songs that make it impossible to sit still.

    The party is at its peak. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.130]

    Their sixth learns from those mistakes [on their fifth album], sounding rougher, tougher and altogether more like the raucous joy of their live shows. [Sep 2013, p.102]
