"Sloth Racket are far from slothful - the music never stays in one place for too long, it is consistently evolving and developing with a good balance between form and freedom."
"This is a group that is willing to stretch itself and take musical risks. Distinctive and highly creative music that explores the intriguing hinterland between the written and the spontaneous."
"An impressive document in its own right, full of an exploratory, vibrant, creative energy and capturing Sloth Racket at their inimitable best."
