"This formation likes to cultivate a certain idea of the artistic blur or comes to mix various musical
orientations which have for only common point their abrupt side, conceptual even experimental."
- Liability Webzine
" And so you can flit from a silly political discussion to something that sounds like Leonard Cohen
deconstructed to some really nice abstract noise." - Jon Worley, A&A
" You could not say that Abstractions are slickers, as their "rags-to-raggedier" kind of artistic freedom makes their sound emissions appreciable by a few stray pigeons and a bunch of lucky critics." -Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
"... here you have many sounds that you can not believe that are coming from an instrument."
- Music Extreme
" But maybe their approach will result in a new and convincing musical identity."
- Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
" Parody, commentary, sarcasm, discursive radicalism on the demencial paranoia of America of the age Bush..." - Eduardo Chagas
