Previous reviews:

“The band's foremost asset Hans Cato Kristiansen has an unprecedented raw and bluesy voice, as anyone probably recalls from Mulens Portland Combo's debut album "Blå Stikke". With the feel of three-day beardballs and a raw appeal like a Delbert McClinton without a safety net. In Norway, not many can match his presence behind the drum set, when he occasionally harmonizes as a Don Henley. Maybe nobody! »

“…In front of it all is the drummer! It is simply a mystery that the kingdom has not previously attached the search engine to Hans Cato Kristiansen. He sounds like native English, and sings ballads (few of them) as good as heavy, up-tempo rock songs. Sometimes he is so similar to Eric Clapton that he could be accused of sampling.”
Arild Rønsen, 2010
