"Indonesia's legendary rock band." (Rolling Stone Magazine)

"These guys are gods. There’s a better-than-even chance that you won’t have heard of AKA, Indonesia’s premier hard-funk/prog/soul/rock/other ensemble between 1971-75 ... It’s all too beautiful for us to nominate highlights." (Record Collector)

"The songs culled from 1970's debut, Do What You Like, and 1971's Reflection, blend their heavy-psych milkshake with an improbably long list of influences, including Cream, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Steppenwolf, Deep Purple, and more. That first album's title track, for instance, resolves into a Mothers of Invention-styled freakout; the bouncy "Crazy Joe" loses the distortion but keeps the psychedelia for an early glimpse of the Soup Dragons, decades before the fact ... a mind-blowing document for previously unaware occidental ears."
