    Opulent, perverse and reassuringly other-worldly. [Oct 2019, p.30]

    Fabula Mendax is another winning installment of the Monochrome Set story that reaches the same heady heights as their recent work, and proves yet again that the group somehow remain as surprising, witty, and tunefully intriguing as they have been right from the start.

    An ambitious concept work based in the 15th century's Hundred Years War. [Nov 2019, p.85]

    It’s an album that stands up on its own and remains, musically at least, a positive, upbeat and highly enjoyable album.

    Bid renders the album's picaresque litany of devious noblemen, murdered knights and debauched bishops with typically knowing aplomb. [Oct 2019, p.89]
