...And we''re not only talking about quantity. Because the 2nd full length album of these guys shows a wide range of arrangments. (...) And despite this broadened musical horizon it seems that the band is feeling right at home in all of their musical directions...

...Jasper Slaghuis has a very open voice, and that''s hard to find in contemporary rock these days. (...) The sixteen songs on ''Still'' have a high standard of quality and are not tedious for one moment...
