"I am currently Absorbing in your Creativeness, I like it so very Much. It reminds me of the things I used to hear on Late night College Radio back in the 1970s.... I'd air any of these Tracks if I was a Radio Host,,, Great Work! I LOVE IT!" - Kelrod Kilwalski

"The toys are most definitely dancing!" - Steven Barber

"surrealist soundtrack" - Thomas Hunt

"I love the creative spirit that goes into your albums" - Michael Inman

"The modern English version of Zorn, Henry Cow... reminds me of a mix of King Crimson's THRaKaTTaK and the music of a documentary film on the rise of industry. Robinson and company are top shelf experimental musicians. Never disappointing, always entertaining!" - Jon Du Bose

"Grand!!!! Colin Robinson never disappoints! Best modern experimental music IMO, right up there with David Kollar and Samuel Hällkvist." - Jon Du Bose

"Churn Milk Joan prove once again that they are one of the finest present day avant-garde acts. Sonic explorers who are capable to mix funk, jazz, rock and musique concrète enabling them to create kaleidoscopic, sound-shifting textures that are next to impossible to describe, but a lot of fun to hear." - Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood weblog

"With weird percussion, the occasional wail of electric guitar and pastoral interludes, Churn Milk Joan are the missing link between Soft Machine and King Crimson" - Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood weblog

"The attention to detail is astounding as per usual with any recording by these two there's layers and layers. The music truly lives in the room with you. From the first track with its jazzy feel to the more experimental 2nd track the album grabbed a hold of me and wouldn't let me go." - Michael Inman

"a kind of forgotten junkyard of chamber arrangements, battered and bruised funk freaks, jarring jazz spectres and creepy carnivals under whose playfully dark cloak elements of the Residents ‘eskimo’ disturb with impish disharmony amid lengthening shadows of sepia soaked surrealist shadow plays, irregular and misshapen it all makes for a wonderfully weird wonderland of toy box awakening after midnight reverie." - Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience
