"They’ve taken to the skies – the chamber orchestra and the singer’s septet. Masterfully beyond all categorisation. Something like this can only really succeed by letting go of the burden of conventions, the compulsion of methods, of the canon of a style. But instead, we experience a richness of colours and facets which is, again and again, brought together by creative power. (Bert Noglik)

"Dared and won ... A convincing album!" (Frank von Niederhäusern, Kulturtipp)

"What can be heard is a symbiotic juxtaposition of the most diverse musical cultures: it is the music of Sarah Buechi." (Christof Thurnherr, Jazz N' More)

"Not only with "sane is a word not well defined by human kind" does the Swiss artist succeed in strong poetry..." (Bad Alchemy)
