"Hautement toxique." NOISEY - FR
"Cinematic, political, dynamic and nuanced: this is post-rock, free-jazz and krautrock inflected improvisation at its bests." EXCLAIM! - CA
"L’un des plus beaux albums de l’année passée, l’un des plus denses, des plus incandescents, mais aussi des plus troués de moments de vagabondage." LA BLOGOTHEQUE - FR
'This pluralistic album was released before 2015’s horrific arisian attacks, causing its music to ricochet. Does freedom have a limit? Should nations close their borders? Is Utopia possible? The album arrived just in time to throw itself into the debate. The music echoes powerfully enough on its own, but the reflected glare of current events makes it shine even more brightly.' A CLOSER LISTEN - USA
"L'histoire d'un disque à l'énergie brute, d'une succession de symphonies désabusées." LES INROCKS - FR
'Tutti gli album degli Oiseaux-Tempête riprendono il mito di Ulisse. (...) Un album notevole, certamente una delle cose migliori di questo 2015.' DISTORSIONI - IT
"Non content d'être l'une des formations françaises les plus intéressantes du moment sur disque, Oiseaux-Tempête est également entrain de proposer l'une des expériences live les plus étourdissantes de l'Hexagone." NEW NOISE MAGAZINE - FR
