“The notes come to your ears as if they were from the hand of God. If there is music in Heaven, this has to be what it sounds like.” 5/5 stars

Buzz Magzine - Roger Reis

“The interaction between guitarist Dani Rabin, and saxophonist Danny Markovitch is magical. Marbin is pulling the most sensitive melodies from the deepest parts of their soul, and it’s up to the listener to allow the music to reach the same areas within.” 5/5 Stars

69 Faces of Rock - Mark Kadzielawa

“Marbin’s “Breaking The Cycle” is a marvel of musicianship and imagination. Every original, thoughtful song on this CD is worthy of its own album, concert, and Grammy.” 5/5 Stars
