... guitar, synthesizer and piano form transparent textures with expressive depth, structured in compositions. (PLÄRRER 5/90)

... Leykam/Mark have perfected the art of conjuring up excellent associative soundscapes and spinning meditative spherical veils on this instrumental album. (TIP 8/90)

... enormous power of imagination. Phenomenal sounds they conjure up on their instruments. Yet one does not get the impression that sound is used only because of its originality. Everything seems to be interwoven and - in the literal sense - full of harmony. (WOM-JOURNAL 10/90)

... an extremely mature work of instrumental music. (FACHBLATT MUSIKMAGAZIN 11/90)

... it's an haute cuisine menu that has been prepared with much love and understanding. True gourmets can let it melt in their sensitive ears. (KEYBOARDS 1/91)
