Do It


  "This really is a breakthrough because for the first time on a stage music and words are one."



- Time Out




An Die Musik


  "All life is concentrated in this solemn music... the songs of eternal distress."



- Le Monde (Paris)




Lulu - Sometimes In Dreams


  "It is stunningly beautiful. Both music and lyrics lift this strange tale to unknown heights. Chris Jordan's melodies are sublime."



-  Göteborg Posten (Sweden)
