  1. In the end the record comes across as too much of a repeat. [#17, p.84]
  2. If TaDet Lugnt was pristine portraiture, carefully aligned and composed, then Tio Bitar is the off-the-cuff action shot – freely flowing and effortlessly jammed, its hair ruffled and with a face in need of a shave.
  3. Although the arrangements remain impressive, there are moments when it feels as though Dungen should stick with a quicker pace. [26 May 2007]
  4. Certainly few guitarists playing today evoke the kind of mad intensity on display here, but like the Comets on Fire, the whole package rarely comes off as good as you think it should.
  5. Dim-witted 1970s rock, that washed-out old dinosaur, is the drearily dominant theme.

    Solid from start to finish. Nearly on par with Ta Det Lungt.

    This album may have been a similar feel to their previous album, but it is definitely worth checking out. There's nothing ruined here, This album may have been a similar feel to their previous album, but it is definitely worth checking out. There's nothing ruined here, it's fairly solid and maybe they risk flopping by reinventing themselves after they show they can put out multiple albums that are enjoyable listens from front to back.
