The Universe of Absence FOR THE UNIVERSE OF ABSENCE (with Jozef Van Wissem):

"IN KEEPING WITH THE GUITARIST'S POLICY OF NEVER STANDING STILL MUSICALLY...a totally different affair than The Edge of Heaven but no less compelling...dense, mercurial original tunes. Hard work, but good work".
fRoots (UK), 1/2005

"STUNNING...surprising to hear how well their instruments fit together...sometimes they sound like a modern adventurous form of Bluegrass...wonderfully psychedelic...one gets the feeling of being lifted to the dark Medieval ages.
Gonzo Magazine (Belgium), 1/2005

"4 STARS...A MUSIC WHOSE EQUAL IS DIFFICULT TO FIND. They continually come up with melodies never played before and surprising sound elements."
Westzeit (Germany), 12/2004

"4 STARS...NEO-PSYCHEDELIC MASTERPIECE. A pearl of improvisation and psychedelia...a wonderfully rippling soundscape which intrigues from beginning to end."
Heaven (Holland), 12/2004

'PENETRATING PSYCHEDELIA...as a listener one is invited to stroll along across the boundaries of an imaginary universe. And to do this with eyes closed, in a secluded space, with headphones."
Noordhollands Dagblad (Holland), 12/2004

"STUNNING...showcasing a subtle alchemy at work...hallmarked by exquisite interplay...full of energy and colour."
THE WIRE (UK), 10/2004

"4 STARS...truly hypnotizing...a psychedelic universe, a delirium of sound...together they build musical castles in the air where one can freely fantasize."
HET PAROOL (Holland), 10/2004
