“The whole trip is splendid and guarantees transcendence for the love of Jeffrey.” - MOJO
"A sympático cast channels JLP's broad musical interests: thus, alongside Mark Lanegan's sombre 'Go Tell The Mountain' (with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis) sit the Ramones-ish charge of The Amber Lights 'Debbie By The Christmas Tree' and Mark Stewart's staccato, squawking 'Vodou.'." - UNCUT
“It’s some tribute to Jeffrey’s talent that a fourth volume of this series still yields such fruits; there’s poetic justice in the fact that high-calibre artists such as these continue to fan the embers.” - VIVE LE ROCK MAGAZINE

"The journey is long and we are only riders. Long ago we had committed to our little endeavour and now the task has overwhelmed us, so that we have simply become axels and sockets in a growing menacing machine."
