Once in a while medicine can be so effective that it improves a persons quality of live. Martin Fabricius' music is effective - the only side effect being lots of relaxation... a dense moody universe with a great sense of melody and feel. - Niels Overgaard, JazzNyt (Oct 25, 2008)
The music floats with nice melodic passages that are so enjoyable you want to listen to it over and over again..... really well done. - Christina Christiansen, Musikken (Oct 01, 2008)
