"Merciless, dread-soaked builds are a key characteristic of Apparitions, the quartet managing to ratchet tension up to a point of unbearable cacophony with such skill that one wants them to defer the eventual release into whirlpools of sonic rubble almost indefinitely. Savouring the incipient sense of dread often trumps the euphoria of the release here, and tracks often move from a hazy, black-helicopters-on the horizon sense of eeriness through to a near-hysterical chorus of skronk and wails. Indeed, rather than bursting out in an EDM-style release, tracks often fall apart in a gristly mess, although it is deliberate demolition rather than unplanned collapse – perhaps a cheeky reminder that the journey is often far more interesting than the destination." We Need No Swords - UK

"The point-of-comparison in this case is obviously to the thirty-two-minute Raw Tonk release, which documents a concert the four gave at Café Oto in April of 2015; the hour-long New Wave Of Jazz collection, on the other hand, captures what went down a day later at the Sound Savers studio.The four side-long pieces on Apparations unfold with marked deliberation and control. The opening fifteen-minute track immediately catches one’s attention for the patience with which it develops; during much of it, Serries exchanges violent shards for atmospheric textures, Lisle opts for drum brushes, and even the saxophonists rein in their aggressive impulses—until the tumultuous closing minutes, at least. “II” sees the four alternating between bluster and rumination for eighteen explorative minutes, while the longest of the pieces is a twenty-minute setting that slowly blossoms from a subdued, minimalistic beginning into an extended series of splintery convulsions by all concerned. Apparations offers a compelling exercise in musical democracy.” Textura - Canada
