"The impressive array of guitarists who contributed to this project speaks loudly to the influence Rypdal has had to generation of plectrists, each of whom have their own distinctive way of expression. That’s why Kaiser had so succinctly summed up Terje Rypdal’s influence when he attests that 'Hendrix, B.B. (King), Django Reinhardt – if they are your heroes, you try to sound like them. Rypdal inspires you to sound like yourself. He opens a door to another reality, like the best art does.'" (Something Else Reviews)

"As a 70th-birthday present for Terje Rypdal, the sound-painterly Norwegian electric guitar original, an all-star international cast of adventurous fellow practitioners – including Americans Bill Frisell and Henry Kaiser, and a raft of Scandinavian players who form thrilling multi-guitar jam-bands on some tracks – have assembled this pulsating tribute to a pioneer who should be a lot better known than he is ... an irresistible blast."
