"Liventure #21 is quite the listening experience indeed. Vespero’s space like sound mixed with experimental rock will give listeners something they do not hear every day and transport them to an out of this world state of mind. Anyone in search of something that is extraordinarily different should check out this disc." – by Ashley Arseneau of Muzik Reviews (USA) (August 2011).
