"Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, REM, Big Star, The Disciplines)"

"Luis Francesco Arena writes from a place of profound mystery. Draping strange and poetic lyrics over oblique chords, he brings something truly unique to his shows and records."
- Ken Stringfellow

"Les Inrockuptibles"

“A rock singer and musician, unplugged and naked : beautiful.?From Elliot Smith to Troy Von Balthazar, he adds its contribution to this ravishing embassy that a few French artists build for the psychedelic Anglo-American folk music”
- Les Inrockuptibles


" Melodic flashes of inspiration."
- Popnews


" A fine record, always subtle and magnificiently tormented."
- Versus

"Guitar Part"

" His voice reminds me of the very moving one of Tom McRae, the emotional strength of Thom Yorke or of Michael Stipe."
- Guitar Part
