Guitarist Michel Delville is quite stunning whether soloing or filling out the spaces between. Suppose you've a friend, who thinks jazz-rock an aberration and fusion noodling its inevitable nadir. Here's what you do. Strap them to a chair, put this on at full volume and leave them a few hours. If by then they still don't get it, find another friend. —Duncan Heining, Jazzwise

Irrepressible guitarist Michel Delville is at home in virtually any musical context. In a scene crowded with hotshot guitar heroes, he has an immediately identifiable sound and the maturity and pacing of his solos truly stands out. —Dave Wayne, All About Jazz

Michel Delville remains a guiding force, a highly creative electric guitarist. —Dave Lynch, All Music Guide

Michel Delville, leader and guitarist of The Wrong Object from Liege, Belgium, is writing tunes which emulate Zappa's taste for succinct idiosyncrasy and melodic lilt. In a modern music scene that regularly trundles out all the paraphernalia of intelligence (laptops, bald heads, performers, desk-tops like mad electronic laboratories), this is the real thing. —Ben Watson, HIFINEWS

Like Frisell & Torn, Delville can play all around an idea and look at it from many different angles. —ZNR

Covering Rypdal's 'Over Birkerot' Michel Delville helps the song veer off from being an out-and-out rocker akin to the original and more a search for the heart of 'Birkerot', circa 2010, with multi-layered rhythmic pulses, unwieldy guitar lines with reverb that send the music airborne. —John Ephland, Downbeat
