"On The Opium Cartel’s second album, Norwegian prog pioneer and White Willow leader Jacob Holm-Lupo is assisted by an Anglo-Scandinavian affiliation that boasts members of Änglagård, Henry Fool, Wobbler and more. Like their leader, these kindred souls are prone to a bit of well-crafted pop ... Intoxicating and addictive." (Louder Sound)

"'The Opium Cartel is a vehicle for the pop leanings of guitarist/songwriter/producer Jacob Holm-Lupo, best known as the leader of Norway's premier art-rock band White Willow' - Well that immediately explains the higher level musicianship and creativity. Add drummer/producer/keyboardist Mattias Olsson, known from Änglagård and Pineforest Crunch and the amazing vocal talents of Venke Knutson and you have an incredibly talented ensemble ... If you like keyboards, synth effects and sounds, this is a must album for your collection. If you like intricate vocals which you cannot hear on the radio every day, then this album is for you. If you like progressive/electronic music delivered with expertise and finesse this album is a don't miss record." (Sea of Tranquility)
