    While these songs offer resistance to a particular reference point, as a whole the work is transcendent. Some of Ribot's own songs are fine enough to warrant inclusion next to the classics he adapts.

    An inspirational fusing of avant-garde, jazz, skronk, clattering drums, blurting saxophones, heartfelt lyrics and stellar guest vocalists. [Sep 2018, p.93]

    What Ribot has put together is an impressive weaving of problems past and disasters current to demonstrate as bad as it gets, people are willing to stand up and fight the good fight.
