"[A] visually stunning and captivating album... For anyone with an ear (or an eye) for music, this album is the perfect opportunity to abandon your seats, join the stage and become a participant rather than just a spectator."--"Zink Magazine"
"Visually sumptuous ... A bold artistic challenge and a madcap creative gauntlet in a pop-culture landscape that favors instant gratification."--"American Way"
