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
