”Norwegian bassist Eivind Opsvik made the most imaginative album trilogy of 2005.” --Nate Chinen, JazzTimes, April 2006

“Eivind Opsvik has an unusual gift for writing small, poignant pieces of music. The color and mood of his music, along with its rhythmic patterns, bleed over into pop, and the sound has a sheer, weightless quality.” --Ben Ratliff , New York Times, January 2003

“Opsvik's own bass has an aching sound, with his lines plumbing the depths to find almost folk-song-like melodies.” --David Dupont, All Music Guide
