"If you like modern Soul Music with a touch of electronics I see no reason why you shouldn’t get this album, as a matter of fact; I order you to get a hold of this one as soon as it’s out." - www.afromonk.com
"While rooted in soul, Stray’s songs cannot help but leave the genre (even if only to renew it), collecting keys and electronic bass lines from futuristic funk and grabbing a few melodies from catchy electronica." - www.beatnikonline.net
"hell yeah...fantastic longplayer !! i love the ranges between some kinda 80s vibe..a lil bit folk and for sure some future beats...excellent work and full support !!!!" - Markus Milz (further in fusion), Radio Corax 95.9fm
