"Weirdly shaped hiphop instrumentals spread over two 25 minute long sides... if you had to shake 'it' around, this would be a fairly good backdrop" - The Wire Magazine

"Heavyweight dubbed out electronics of the highest order... ghostly voices litter the sound-scape. Backwards masking and unsettling tones seep in, as good as any Demdike Stare creep-out. Most definitely worth the ticket price, I’m officially back into tapes" - Cyclic Defrost Magazine

"K.A.L. travels in the same territory of sonic murk and sharp edges as RZA and Anticon‘s Jel (Themselves / cLOUDDEAD), and imbues the album with an ever present menace A fondness for distressed samples, found sounds, static and atonal noise… result in an experience that is schizophrenically both comforting and disturbing; beautiful and strange…” - The Skinny

"As a voice intones: “Here come the legends” it’s soundtracked by whipcrack percussion and a Scots-American accent that rambles on in a cross between Aidan Moffat and Gil Scott Heron while another strange vaguely Arabic voice wails from a nearby minaret... that rather sets the scene" - Is This Music?
