"They've come up with a winning formula"

-All About Jazz 2006, Michael P. Gladstone (Me For You-Album)
“So how does all of this play out? Philosophically, they've come up with a winning formula—the songs, removed from their rock trappings, do sound better with the simplicity of a piano jazz trio. Kristjana's smoky voice, paired with Agnar's sensitive yet probing piano, transforms the music into a late-night setting, and the addition of Gress and Hollenbeck do indeed add to the jazzification of this material”.

"The magnificence of Kristjana’s voice"

-All About Jazz 2003, Roger Crane (Beautiful World-Album)
“You do not need to understand Icelandic to appreciate the magnificence of Kristjana’s voice”.
