"...without a doubt, the best offering from the large Brooklyn underground I've heard in recent memory."

"Each of the eight songs here seems to come a very different place, yet they still sound connected by a singular spirit or direction. Let's welcome Urbana to the burgeoning progressive, impossible-to-pigeon-hole local scene with their outstanding debut!"

-Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

"...a wonderfully warm album with a strong group dynamic, which allows it to keep a band identity while moving through different settings. At the same time, the diversity of instrumental voices keeps the tunes sounding fresh."

-Kurt Gottschalk, New York City Jazz Record
