"Great heavy prog with psychedelic and jazzy arrangements." (B. Olariu)

"Formed in Perth in 1970, this progressive rock outfit is generally regarded as one of the best of Australia’s early ‘70s underground bands. Bakery included ex-New Zealand Avengers’ rhythm section of Hank Davis (drums) and Eddie McDonald (bass) in their line-up, and their music blended hard rock and country with jazz, using complex arrangements." (Rockasteria)

"Bakery was formed in Perth at the start of 1970. Regarded as one of the leading "underground" groups of their day, they are remembered for their superb debut album Momento, the innovative Rock Mass for Love LP and the powerful single "No Dying In The Dark". (Milesago)

"Bakery blended hard rock and country with jazz using complex arrangements. Their main strength was the variety of their music which could switch from gentle acoustic passages to booming heavy progressive assaults on the senses within the same song." (Vernon Joynson)

"The bands style is a mix between heavy progressive, jazz and a slight psychedelic feel. The sound is quite rich sometimes including flue, keys, piano and saxophone. The writing is good and the band is trying to go from one idea to the next easily passing through some instrumentals on the way or solos. Mixing between calm acoustic parts and heavier rockier moments." (Sagichim)
