Review excerpts:
There are virtually no weaknesses in this record. It impresses more on every listen and your mind, body and soul deserve to be exposed to its’ radiance. I mean, come on, you can even download eight of the tracks for free, however, trust me, you will only be left wanting the other three anyway! (4,5 out of 5 stars – Progradar @ Lady Obscure.com)

Music To Stand Around And Feel Akward To is misschien per ongeluk tot stand gekomen. Deze progressieve metalplaat van Nederlandse bodem is echter met trots uit de klei getrokken en is, mede door de vele gastbijdragen, een heerlijke cd geworden. Aangezien de composities, zoals eerder gezegd is, soms wat complex over kunnen komen, vergroei je met het geheel wanneer je de cd vaker luistert. Die gaat nog vaak de speler in dit jaar.(Maurice van der Zalm @ Rockportaal.nl)

Musikalisch geht es hier um moderne Rockmusik mit progressiven und hartmetallischen Einflüssen. Sie wird von Toms klarer Stimme dominiert, die auch zu Folk(metal) gut passen würde – für derartige erzählerischen Gesamtkunstwerke ist sie jedenfalls ideal. (Klaus Reckert @ gaesteliste.de)
