'While improvisation is central to the band's conception, it's the quality of the Sadeghi's compositions and the opulence of the ensemble sound as much as any soloing that makes the music so enthralling. Despite its bright, metallic sound, the tar has a singular ability to soothe one into a state of quiet rapture, so you emerge from its spell feeling that perhaps you can survive another day, after all.' (John Shand - The Sydney Morning Herald)
