“…one of the finest releases I’ve heard yet in 2011.” — The Bone Reader

“Occasionally a band comes along defying trends and classifications and just rocks without pretense. Raw, honest music that fills you full of hope again. Music that makes you think and rethink what you know about it too. One such band is TOTIMOSHI… ” – Metal Army America

“Sludge metal meets alternative metal meets 70s hard rock… an album which – with the presence of elements from a number of different rock genres – probably will have a broad appeal among fans of alternative rock/metal, sludge metal, psychedelic heavy rock, progressive hard rock and perhaps even dark progressive metal along the lines of Psychotic Waltz.” – Sea Of Tranquility
